Forceful Tongue is an enhancement to shouts and their system.
It provides a balancing of the system through tweaks on shouts damage, duration and effects, without making them too overpowered.

General Changes
  • Shouts power* will scale with your level after you kill Mirmulnir, up to 50%. Call Odahviing, Call of Valor, Dragon Aspect, Dragonrend, Summon Durnehviir and Throw Voice are excluded from this.
  • Shouts that are similar in purpose are grouped in categories, where they have the same cooldown and duration (you can't use shouts of different categories in a row), with some exceptions like Become Ethereal, Dragon Aspect and Storm Call. Categories are divided in buff & debuff, crowd control, offensive, summon, support and utility.
  • A ton of bug fixes. To name one, Shouts will not benefit from magic perks anymore.
  • Draugr, Miraak and whoever uses Shouts, will benefit from any changes.
  • New Inventory Models for all Shouts.

Notable Changes
  • Summoned Odahviing and the one from "The Fallen" quest will not be based on leveled list anymore. His level will scale with the player, from a min. of 30 to a max of 70 (slightly less powerful than a legendary dragon). He will use new Shouts.
  • Call of Valor heroes and ones from "Dragonslayer" quest shares the same changes. Their level will now scale with the player, from a min. of 15 to a max of 70. I've tweaked stats and equipment too, to make them more consistent. Also, they will remain until death.
  • Dismay changed to be an AoE shout.
  • Drain Vitality absorbs attributes.
  • Dragonborn Flame Fire Wyrm's level is fixed at 30, will attack only enemies and won't stay in the same spot anymore.
  • Dragonborn Force won't disintegrate enemies anymore.
  • Dragonborn Frost affects Ice Form too. Frost Breath will not encase targets in ice, instead will summon a level 30 Ice Wyrm.
  • Kyne's Peace will affect humans too.
  • Summoned Durnehviir and the one from "Beyond Death" quest share the same changes. He is now a Poison Dragon, strong versus Warriors but weak versus Mages. He will benefit from Dragonskin perk, will use new Shouts and His level will scale with the player, from a min. of 30 to a max of 70 (slightly less powerful than a legendary dragon). His summoned minions spawn at level 25 and will last 120 seconds.
  • Whirlwind Sprint boosts your movements.
