A Tale of Tongues - Nordic Unbound

This version of ATOT tweaks all of the vanilla shouts in the same way that ATOTSU 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 Unbound. Don't subscribe to both as they are non-compatible!

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

May Talos guide your path - Grey

what is the mod to put shields on your back

Sadly, the changes affect whether you're able to completely the main quest. The Greybeard do not register that I'm shouting at them.

Personally, I'm not one for over- powering my Dovahkiin, but I tend to use my shouts quite sparingly, and therefore I am subbing to Unbound Edition.

(And as a side note-- did you notice that the Paid Workshop was only up for about two days before being torn down?)

In response to the recent changes to steam which allow creators to charge for mods:

To be honest im really dissapointed. One of the best things about modding is that it was free and available to everyone. It is was community creating imaginitive content for other people to enjoy. There were no restrains to what could be done. It was such a special thing for me as a creator to share my little piece of the world with everyone, and paying for mods really ruins it.

I can understand why steam would think that this would be beneficial for the creators. Supporting creators for thier works seems like a good idea in theory. But it isnt about the money, its about the joy of creating, and having others experience your creation...

...I always used to get so much excitement from viewing the front page, and looking at all of the amazing content everyone has created. All of it free and available for everyone to enjoy. Soon it will just be a wall full of numbers and closed doors. It will be a dissapointment, looking at all the content you could have if you were richer. These days it seems like every game is becoming pay to play.

Modding should be free. If you really want to support creators steam, have an ad show before download. This way the content is still free, and creator still get a bit of money for their work. Monitzation is going to kill this community. It will suck all the life and joy out of modding for everyone.

Even though im not actively creating mods anymore, all of my mods will remain free forever. Im really sorry this has happened, an I wish it werent the case.

I love the Shouts now being OP, as well as the cosmetic changes to the shouts, but my only complaint is that you cant shout at the greybeards for the main quest. you have to exit the game, disable, finish teh quest, then re-enable the mod. I hope this gets fixed in the future.

@WillCox BurnTooth Duel Sheath Redux, and if you don't want paddle weapons, LeanWolfs Better Shaped Weapons. DL DSR before BSW and add the patch for DSR. since both conflict with each other.
