People love to throw The Way of The Voice in against Ulfric even though he used it exactly like the dragonborn does. First against the elves in the great war then again against the Forsworn to free Markarth after the Jarl begged for help and the empire ignored him.

There are multiple accounts of the battle but the NPCs that are still in Markarth speak nothing but praises so I'm not so sure about the validity of that one book that states otherwise.

And once again, the way of the voice is a philosophy. Some people honestly belief it's the rulebook that comes with the thu'um. The Thu'um never had any sort of restriction on it until Jurgen got so demoralized that he decided everyone should become monks to cover the shame of being stomped out at Red Mountain by the Dark Elves.

Prior to this the nords have used shouts in every war they could. Yes, Ulfric doesn't follow the way of the voice, that doesn't however constitute as a crime anywhere.


The Way of the Voice is a philosophy and will only be taught by the Greybeards to those don't use it for violence. Its their rule which the Dragonborn is an exception to. If you take on the training youre agreeing to their rules which Ulfric turned on.

Oath wasn't the right word, Ill admit that but he did turn on them albeit for the greater good. The same as the Empire. They want to defeat the Dominion and theyre doing what they can to do so. You cant always please everyone and do the "good" thing at the same time if youre going to save them all.

i dunno, i respect ulfric for using his thu'um to help people alot more than the greybeards who sit on their mountain quietly shouting at each other while the world burns around them.

stupid hippy greybeards, why dont you help some people? jerks!

I'm now laughing at the image of a dragon smoking herb with a bunch of wise old dudes who probably have to hold in their stoner laughs because their voices may cause the Throat of the World to crumble to dust.

On a more serious note, even though the Empire seems to be working with the Dominion, I'm pretty sure the vast majority of the Empire's citizens wish for them to fight off the elves and cast off the chains of Elvish oppression. The Empire is simply biding its time. Soon, they will strike. Or not. I just like to believe they will. As the NPCs who wish to join the Legion say, "A united Empire is better for everyone." The Dominion will fall, or the Empire will tear itself apart to an Elvish tune.

I know lots of people like Balgruuf, but I find him to lack determination. I vote Kodlak Whitemane personally.


Kodlak would be good, but it would require some necromancy to make that happen.

I vote Alvor the smith in Riverwood. He gave me a book once so I like em.

Urag gro-Shub, there is something about a Librarian Orc Mage, that just screams "I could run a province"


Oh you're so right. I think he'd run a tight ship.
