{{Daggerfall Trail}}
The '''Spell-Maker''' is a powerful tool for magic-using Daggerfall characters. Use of the Spell-Maker is the first benefit gained when a character joins the Mage's guild. With the Spell-Maker, characters can create customized spells with a wide variety of effects. For purposes of some quests, custom spells cannot substitute for Circinate ("canned") spells.

The Spell-Maker is a powerful tool for magic-using Daggerfall characters. Use of the Spell-Maker is the first benefit gained when a character joins the Mage's guild. With the Spell-Maker, characters can create customized spells with a wide variety of effects. For purposes of some quests, custom spells cannot substitute for Circinate ("canned") spells.
 
==Spell-Maker Basics==
Using the Spell-Maker, custom spells with up to three effects can be created. Depending upon the chosen effects of the spell, many parameters of these spells can be adjusted to a large degree. Besides the effects, the purchase cost and the casting cost are the most important considerations when creating custom spells.
 
'''===Purchase Cost''' ===
 
The purchase cost is how much gold the character must spend to buy the custom spell. This is simply a function of the spell's power. The more power a spell packs, the more it costs to buy. There is no negotiation process for this price; the game simply calculates the cost of a spell as it is created.
 
'''===Casting Cost'''===
 
The casting cost in Spell-Points is calculated for each spell according to two separate elements:
*Skill level in the applicable school(s) of magic of the character, ''and''
*The relevant attribute governing the skill in question.
 
'''===Effects'''===
 
The spell effects available in the spell-maker duplicate all of the effects of the circinate spells with a large degree of flexibility in several ways. ''Chance'' of effect, ''Duration'' and ''Magnitude'' of effect can all be manipulated, although not all effects can be manipulated in all three ways.
