Look Who’s Talking! The dragons of Skyrim have learned to speak thanks to a mod

The dragons of Skyrim

The language of dragons plays a central role in the narrative of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. As the protagonist, known as the Dovahkiin ( Dragon’s Blood), players spend most of their time learning to use it in combat.

Yet the Dragons are not given many opportunities to express their thoughts! With the exception of some phases of the plot during which Paarthurnax and Odahviing appear, these wonderful and at the same time fearsome winged beasts never speak. Apparently, one thing didn’t go down to a player at all. Modder Voeille considered it appropriate to grant the gift of the word also to the dragons that wander among the snow-capped peaks and the Skyrim meadows, creating a special mod called Talkative Dragons.

The operation is as simple as it is ingenious: Voeille has simply recycled some lines of dialogue already present in the game and deemed suitable for the purpose. By installing this mod, the Dragons will begin to turn to the Dovakhin with phrases such as “I am not afraid of you, Dovahkiin”, or “You are brave. Your defeat will do me honor!”. If you are curious to try it, then we refer you to the official page on Nexus Mods, where you can find the files to download and all relevant instructions.

Although almost eight years have passed since the original release, there is still excitement around The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, no doubt about it. A few weeks ago, we also presented a titanic mod that adds more than 200 spells!
