So I couldn't find any information on this yet so I though I'd start one. So in the midden of the College of Winterfell is a Atronach forge, if you put say void salts and amethest(sp?), into the box and pull the lever you get a lightning atronach that attacks you.
Apparently there is an orb shaped object that goes into the forge that changes the properties of the summoned atronachs, has anyone found what this is? I tried the dynamo core but that didn't work. Going to find the daedra's treaure that you meet in the midden, hopefully its there but i doubt it...

The orb shaped object is a Sigil Stone. It seems to have no effect on the atronachs (I summoned a flame one and it just attacked me like normal. I think it had the same health too. You get it by maxxing out your conjuration and doing the quest that lets you permanently summon zombies and atronachs.
Fallout New Vegas: The central conflict is essentially; US Army Vs. Roman Empire Vs. Howard Hughes and his army of robots. People still complained about it.
There are several youtube videos up about the atronach forge, where they make staffs and tomes for summoning storm and flame atronachs. Check out skyrimmagic.wordpress.com and SkyrimMagic on youtube they have posted several recipes.
Also, once you get the sigil stone you can use it to make daedric armor and weapons with black soul gems and some other stuff, will post details as soon as I can. Also going to find out if the black star soul gem is consumed when you do this.
