Note: All assets of this mod were created from scratch by me, nothing was converted from other games.
Alteration magic provides the users the power over the physical world, allowing them to breath under water, create powerful magical armors and wards, freely manipulate objects, create light from their bare hands, and even levitate. In a huge variety and collection of know spells of the Alteration School, there is one particular magic effect that usually makes a someone’s eyes glimmer when they hear about it, a spell that can literally turn metals to pure and shiny gold…
Although the main purpose of this spell is to turn metals into gold, it may be possible for individual to further study and improve this is spell till a point where it might transform metals in any kind of mineral they want, this is probably the case of the Crystal Straight Sword. The shape of the weapon suggests someone tried and succeeded to shapeshift a common sword into a crystal.
Not perfectly thought, there are marks of chipping all over the sword, which suggests the person tried to fix the final shape of the weapon.
