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? :)

    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. – SaintSix_ Feb 27 '14 at 11:34
  • @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 – srgb Mar 3 '14 at 15:35

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!
