A Tale of Tongues - Nordic Edition

This version of ATOT tweaks all of the vanilla shouts in the same way that ATOTS does, however the visual effects for all of the shouts have been altered.


If you do not read the entire description you will not understand what this mod does!

My aim in this mod was to make shouting feel more 'Nordic' by putting an emphasis on the actual 'shouting' and making it seem less as though you are simply casting spells out of your mouth. I wanted make Tongues seem more like warriors and a lot less like spellcasters.

What this means is:
  • All of the more colourful shout projectile effects have been replaced with a more realistic looking one.

  • The Imods (image modifiers, where the screen flashes a certian colour when casting a shout) have been removed.

  • All effect shaders have been removed.

The shouts look a lot more realistic now in my opinion. If you were like me and thought that the Dragon Shouts looked a bit too 'arcane' and magical, this may be the mod for you.

Because effect shaders have been removed, it can be difficult to tell when a shout has suceeded. When using dismay, for example, a flash of red will not occur when the target has been hit and 'Feared' enemies will not glow red. It looks a lot more realistic now but it can make the game a lot harder.

Almost all projectile shouts have a been altered to look more realistic, however those shouts based on elements (Fire Breath, Frost Breath, Ice Form) have been unaltered, keeping with the theme of the mod. Please also note that only the visuals of the projectiles have been changed, they still have the size/shape/speed of the original projectiles.

You really wont know exactly what I mean untill you try these shouts out for yourself. This is a matter of personal taste, and I can understand that certian people may not like this mod. In my opinion however, I feel that I have made Tongues seem much more like warriors and a lot less like spellcasters.

Please take note:
As well as altering the visuals of the shouts, this mod also includes all of the changes to effects and cooldowns of A Tale of Tounges - Standard Edition. Don't subscribe to both as they are non-compatible!

I highly reccomend that you read the description of A Tale of Tounges - Standard Edition so that you can see the changes to shout effects and cooldowns that this mod also adds.

May Talos guide your path - Grey

Nordic Unbound causes all shouts to have no cooldown. Its not a bug, thats wha the mod does :) You only need to use one of those two mods though, they are not ment to be used together.

This mod works well, but makes "The way of the voice" uncompletable. My guess is that all the greybeards can't be knocked down. I got to the part where you have to shout at them (I had the mod running) and when I shouted the game said "Arngeir has resisted Fus." My guess would be that the greybeards can't be knocked down, and changing unrelenting force so that it knocks things down at all levels is screwing this quest up.
