How many of you were excited when you saw the Dwarven version of the staff?
How many of you were disappointed it wasn't available as a craftable type of staff when Dragonborn DLC came out?
Dwarven Staves for Crafting goes out to fix that to a certain extent.
Personally, I always wanted to use a Dwarven Staff to cast Thunderbolt, or summon creatures, so I endeavored to do just that.
The Mod adds 33 Staves to craft on the Staff Workbench, along with the Unenchanted Dwarven Staff in the forge.
All Staves follow the same naming conventions as their vanilla counterparts, including the extra ones added by this mod. They also have similar to identical crafting costs. For example, a vanilla Staff of Thunderbolts requires 4 Heart Stones and an Unenchanted staff, as well as knowing the spell, the Dwarven version has same requirements.

-Unenchanted Dwarven Staff (Requires Dwarven Smithing and Arcane Blacksmith) *

This mod should be compatible with any other mod since it has it's own crafting recipes. Mods that alter the base enchantments found in vanilla staves may cause problems with this mod.
Are these staves in the leveled lists?
-Not at the moment. Perhaps in the future I will add them, but I have other mods I want to make, and these may be incorporated into the other project.
Lorewise, the Dwarves didn't deal with the Daedra, can you take those staves out?
-No, because I figured the staves would just have been made by modern mages. (Dragonborn included).
Will my followers use them?
Will you add Arcane Library Creation Club spells to the mod?
-Eventually, but not all spells.
I am new-ish to modding, and I don't know how to make patches yet, so the community is welcome to add their two cents in to make this mod run better for others.
I don't mind if people use this for other mods, since all I did was just assign assets and all. All I ask is that I get credited when you use it. Just that.
If anyone has any suggestions that could make the mod better, or me as a modder, you're welcome to PM me.
