I was just fighting a dragon outside of Windhelm, when suddenly it seemed like I uttered a Word of power and fiery stones started raining from the sky. I managed to drink a Waterbreathing potion and hide under ice until it passed. I don't know this Word and didn't shout - I was simply running around trying to hit the dragon with lightning bolt. When I opened my status screen, this is what I saw:

Storm call - QO - +10 CG Dragon Storm Call Self 45 secs

Can someone please care to elaborate? :)

    What mods are you using, especially those related to dragons?

    While fighting Alduin in Sovngarde, if you open the Active Effects menu, something similar shows up, which is due to Alduin Shouting (thus producing the 'fiery stones' mentioned). I think in this case too, it is the dragon, and not you who had Shouted.

  • @BlackHawk that's what I concluded in the end - what confused me is the graphics of shout coming from my body, as if I uttered the word.. weird

The reason is, The game stylises this as you shouting it, but actually when fighting a dragon, this can happen. Just a little glitch, but it still looks cool!
