I had started up my research on The Elder Scrolls(TES) again and had begun with the Shouts(Like the infamous Fus Ro Dah).
I had theorized that the shouts can be used as incantations or mantras or something of the like.
You could use them like you would any other verbal chants. VIbrating them, saying them a certain number of times, or any other way you chant.
I went ahead and made a list of the shouts and what I think they would do in our world. If you’re interested in I can PM it to you.
As an example, I’ll use the “Od Ah Viing” shout. I don’t think it could get simpler than this as what this shout does in-game is call the dragon Odahviing to help you out in a fight. As you probably have noticed, the shout is literally the dragon’s name.
In our world, you can use an entity’s name to help evoke that entity. The same concept can apply here with Odahviing. Using the shout/name to evoke him in our world.
As another example, we can use the Dragon Aspect shout. “Mul Qah Diiv”. I’d have to say this is my favorite. In the game, this shout increases your strength, defense, and the power of your other shouts.
You may have already guessed, but this shout would probably help with self-transformation. Increasing your strength, endurance, and spiritual power. I think it’s Alchemy, but I’m unfamiliar with that as of right now.
I say probably because I have yet to confirm any of this. It is only theorized currently.
I will be posting updates with results and if any of you want to check it out as well then go right ahead.
