Dragon Shout ContestJuly 16, 2014
The power of the Voice is projected through the use of a Thu’um, a Shout. Each Shout is made up of individual Words of Power imbued with the strength to summon storms, inspire fear, or hurl goats from mountaintops.
This contest challenges you to create your very own Thu’um. Choose your Shout’s three Words of Power, describe its effect, and in addition, write the Word Wall where a Dragonborn would learn your Shout.
Winning entries will be featured in a collection here in the Library. You don’t need to be a member to enter, but if you are there’s a 120 gold prize for the top 3 entries.
Here is an example of what an entry might look like using an in-game example.
Throw Voice Shout
Zul "voice" - Mey "fool" - Gut "far"
This Shout is a whisper that creates phantom voices from a targeted location. It is the perfect distraction to throw enemies off your trail.
Modir fin Gut wahlaan qethsegol

Contest Entry Guidelines
Read the Dragon Names & Shouts lesson for guidelines and ideas for your Shout. Each Shout should have three unique Words of Power that are one syllable each. Generally, each Word of Power should be able to stand on its own, so the Shout will still have power if only one or two Words are spoken.
Word Walls should be roughly between 10-30 words in length, or approximately 2-4 lines. Your Word Wall must contain all three Words of your Shout. The Words do not have to be in the same order as they are in your Shout, only as long as they're included somewhere in your Wall. Entries can cover any subject matter, but try to refrain from any explicit material. Submit text only.
The contest will be open for entries until Friday, July 25th. Mul zul!
