The Tale of the History of the Shout-Mages of Skyrim
as told by me, informed by my rough memory and perhaps embellished my imagination
In the old days, before the empire was an empire, and before Skyrim was anything more than a region, the chiefs of the Nords knew well the tongue of the dragons, and employed it in war. In those days, no engines were brought to a siege, for the chieftains would bring down the walls of their enemies with their voices alone.
But there came a man who was great in voice, and called all warmaking evil. And twelve great chiefs came before him, and they shouted at him words in the dragon's tongue. But for twelve days and twelve nights, the pacifist ate all of their shouts, until they had none left. And when all twelve of the chiefs were exhausted, they became the followers of that man, and they taught the language of the dragons in a place in the mountains and did not make war. Thus, the language of the dragons for many centuries was used only peacefully in Tamriel.
But after this time a man came to Skyrim, and he was name was Tiber Septim, though he now is called Ysmir in Skyrim, and in Cyrodiil he is called Talos.
And he did many things in Skyrim, and one thing he did was form a school wherein the tongue of the dragon was taught, and it was taught to many people and some were not pacifists, and so that speech is used now for war once more.
