New shouts

Meditating to Kyne
After completing the Greybeard crowning ceremony, you gain access to the High Hrothgar Library. Meditate in front of the statue of Kyne in the Library to gain new insights in the Voice. While meditating, your stamina gradually decreases until you enter a trance and the stamina bar vanishes. Count the heartbeats and interrupt your meditation when you are as close to zero stamina as possible; too early and you learn nothing, too late and you may summon angry figments of the Voice!

Learning new shouts
The new shouts consist of three words from different familiar shouts. When you meditate, each word you have unlocked in a familiar shout is also learned and unlocked as part of a new shout (its "alternate meaning").

As a novice of Kyne, you can only learn the first word of any new shout through meditation. When you reach 500 favor with Kyne you can learn the second word, and at 1000 favor with Kyne you can learn the third word. Note that you cannot learn the second or third word of a new shout if you don't know the previous word(s) yet.

You can meditate again after unlocking more words to expand your arsenal. A full list of shouts and their effects can be found in Hodir's Notes in the High Hrothgar Library.

How to gain favor with Kyne

Worshipping Kyne takes more than idle prayer. After meditating to Kyne for the first time, you are elegible to gain favor for meditating and shouting. She also bestows several tests of faith unto you; pass them to gain favor and several unique abilities...

- Touch Kyne from atop Skyrim's highest point - Reward: Nordic Welcome.
- Hunt Kyne's spirit animals in the wild (repeatable) - Reward: Storm Crown.
- Leap off a tall edge with Whirlwind Sprint - Reward: Echo.
- Gain the Voice of the Sky blessing along the 7000 Steps (repeatable) - Reward: Scorched Earth.
- Shout to the heavens once a day (repeatable)
- Walk or ride across Skyrim's landscapes
- Carry Kyne's spirit up the 7000 Steps to the doors of High Hrothgar - At the foot of the 7000 Steps is Kyne's Fire. Pick up the Fire and deliver it to the doors of High Hrothgar before it fades. Fast travel and menus are disabled, you have unlimited stamina and automatically equip the Whirlwind Sprint shout. Reward (3:00): Phantom Decoy (shout). Reward (2:40): Way of Peace. Reward (2:15): Greybeard robes in Snow colour scheme.

A handy ability in your magic menu keeps track of your current favor points. When you perform an action that grants favor, you also have a chance to receive a Dragon Soul. This chance decreases each time you receive a Dragon Soul.

Other content

Greybeard robes HD
A set of unenchanted Greybeard robes with more model detail than the vanilla robes and the notorious clipping issues fixed. In addition to the standard Robes, the Library contains 20 other variants in splendid colour schemes. An extra 4 variants can be unlocked by completing various challenges.

The High Hrothgar Library
Should you decide to make High Hrothgar your home, the Library contains a bed, permanent storage space and possibly a few secrets...

Pillars of the Voice
Scattered throughout Skyrim and Solstheim are these mystic pillars inscribed with draconic wisdom. Each Pillar corresponds to one shout. If you have unlocked all three words of this shout, you can activate the Pillar to gain a blessing that improves the shout. Only one Pillar blessing can be active at any time. When you activate your first Pillar, a quest appears, encouraging you to find other Pillars. Activating your second Pillar marks all of them on the map.

Amulet of Mantras
To facilitate shout combos, this amulet automatically cycles through a predefined chain of shouts each time you shout in combat. Create or extend a chain of shouts ("mantra") by wearing the amulet, selecting the desired shout and praying to the statue of Talos in the High Hrothgar Library. A mantra can consist of up to 10 shouts. Unequip the amulet to forget the mantra and start over.

Buffs and bugfixes
Many shout related bugs have been fixed and their effectiveness has been increased. See the Readme for more information.

>"can you make a non DLC pack"

No, because that would mean removing every shout that has at least one DLC word in it, which means about half of the shouts; as well as every spell effect based on DLC graphics (while it isn't -necessary- to remove those, not doing so constitutes piracy). In the end, this equals pretty much a new mod with very few features.

Remember when the Legendary Edition with all DLC was €9.99 a few months ago? :p

Hell... the DLC adds a ton of shouts and dovahkiin swag, so if you care about shouts, you'd have the DLC already. Mods are not a free substitute for paid DLC.

can you make a non DLC pack

That depends on whether you could talk to them for long enough to get crowned.

So, this may have been already asked and answered, but I just couldn't be bothered to look through all of the pages to see. My question is: I actually decided to kill Paarthunax (Or however you spell his name) and this was BEFORE I downloaded a mod that allowed you to pretty much say "No, fuck you Blades, I don't wanna kill him" without any real consequences, and, because of this, as you might know, the Greybeards pretty much refuse to talk to me, and for good reason. So... can I still get to this "library" even though I decided to kill Paarthunax? Thanks in advance :)

You waited 13 hours for a reply instead of going to the Nexus and reading the changelog?
