Dragon Shout Contest

July 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
zeymahii vahrukt Oskar
fin Mey wen zul los sahlo ahrk
ni sahrot Thu’um do ok brod

Modir the Far raised this stone
in his brother’s memory, Oskar
the Fool whose voice was weak and
not the mighty Thu’um of his clan.

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.

You can send your entry in a private message to paarthurnax or send it in the body of an email to [email protected] with the subject line: Dragon Shout Contest. In this email, please provide:

  • Your Shout's name
  • Your Shout's description
  • Your Shout's Words of Power (3 Words, one syllable each)
  • Your Shout's Word Wall and its translation
  • The name, pen name, username, or blog url you would like attributed to your entry

The contest will be open for entries until Friday, July 25th. Mul zul​!
