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

@Agent Blackout for further reference you can just go into 'Data Files' when launching the game, find the mod and untick the box next to the name of the mod to uninstall it and then check it to reinstall it so you don't have to bother subbing and un-subbing. :)

I got the same bug, TheBannedConsole. Annoying that I had to unsub for even a minute, cause I love this mod! Kinda glad I did, tho, cause I got to look at some more mods when I resubscribed!

Looks really good, I can't wait to try it out. Will all feared enemies not glow red even ones not feared by a shout (A spell or 'Battle Cry')? In any case, it looks like a good mod, you are truly a great mod maker.

Talos guide you.

Hi. Don't know if this has been posted before, but I've found a bug. When Arngeir (However you spell it) askes you to Fus him, it just says you haven't demonstrated it and you can't progress further without taking out the mod temporarilly.
Not that this matters, it's a great mod, I just thought you'd like to know.

Yeah that sounds like a good idea. And maybe do a google search, someone may have had this problem before. Yeah but sorry man, I have no idea what is casuing it :/

Yep, i'm all up to date on steam. Do you think it would be worth making a post on the Steam forums about it?
TheGreyLight  [author] Aug 20, 2014 @ 7:51pm 
Is your steam up to date? Maybe updating it will fix it??
SamsoniteGuitarMan Aug 20, 2014 @ 11:40am 
I've checked if its the same for other mods by downloading one from steam workshop and the same thing happens. So the same thing happens for other mods as well. Quite strange. :/

Whaa..? Thats really strange. Does it only happen for this mod, or others too?
