The action takes place 200 years after the events of Oblivion. Players take on the role of one of the last heroes of the dovahkiin profession, i.e. the dragon hunter. Until recently, it seemed that the mighty monsters were only a memory, but one day the scaly beasts begin to reappear in the sky, and a prophecy heralds the arrival of Alduin, the god of destruction who takes the form of a dragon.
By fighting these dangerous monsters, we take over their souls and abilities, i.e. the so-called Screams. With their help, we can slow down time, push opponents away with invisible energy, and even summon an allied dragon for help. We get a lot of this type of skill after finding ancient words hidden in the Nordic dungeons.
