Similarity[edit]

I'm wondering: has anyone ever equated the story of Alduin eating the life time of the Nords with the Dragon Break?

No, it doesnt seem to be the same to me, similar, but probably not the same thing.--Stranger 00:44, 12 October 2011 (GMT)

Books[edit]

It seems the part about him eating away the age of all the Nords doesn't fit in right. Why is just one bit of lore included? Instead perhaps the book(s) that feature Alduin should be in a list instead of trying to include little bits of the story that seem out of place.--Zar Pof 14:33, 1 July 2011 (UTC)

A list of books is already found in the references. If this page was simply listing references, it would have no content. If you can improve the sentences to include more of the story (relevant to Alduin of course), then feel free. But removing the information entirely would defeat the article's purpose - to document all we know about him, even if it's an unlikely legend. --Legoless 14:40, 1 July 2011 (UTC)

how do you pronounce his name i was always useing a-lu-din?[edit]

look at question

In the game, they usually pronounce his name as All-doo-in or Al-doo-in.RIM 18:19, 16 November 2011 (UTC)

We Need A Spoiler Warning (11/18/11)[edit]

Someone who might want to read up on the lore of Alduin but not know some revelations about him from the game Skyrim might be pretty pissed to find a big reveal right on the front page. (I know I was) Please, can we get the previous article with the new info at the bottom under spoilers?

Perhaps you're unfamiliar with wiki policies regarding spoiler warnings... THERE ARE NONE. 74.70.240.69 21:39, 6 December 2011 (UTC)
Actually, there is already a spoiler warning -- right at the top of the main page. --Brf 21:42, 6 December 2011 (UTC)

Battles he was involved in?[edit]

Is there any particular reason (spoilers perhaps?) why there is no mention of his fight with the 3 Nords atop the Throat of the World, or with the Dovahkiin? — Unsigned comment by 74.74.131.246 (talk) at 20:10 on 27 November 2011 (GMT)

Yes, there is a reason: nobody has bothered adding it yet. --Legoless 16:29, 3 December 2011 (UTC)

The Way of The Voice had nothing to do with it.[edit]

Correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't the Greybeard Order founded after Alduin's banishment. If so I'ss change the article.--Br3admax 02:09, 11 February 2012 (UTC)

The Way of the Voice was Jurgen Windcaller's invention, IIRC. He taught Paarthunax. — Unsigned comment by 71.204.50.95 (talk) on 11 May 2012
Actually, Paarthurnax was the one who taught humans how to use the Thu'um. Jurgen created the Way of the Voice after his meditations revealed that misuse of the Thu'um for battle was what led to the punishment of men by the gods. ThuumofReason 11:40, 11 May 2012 (UTC)
True Need. Using the thu'um for battle is not necessarily bad, so long as it's done in a time of True Need. The Nords, like the dragons before them, failed when they began making war and seeking power instead of seeking peace and making harmony. And, yes, this article needs some work.

Mistakes[edit]

The last paragraph is rife with errors, Parthurnax taught the first tongues how to use the Thu'um, and later, Jurgen Windcaller formed the Greybeards, which Parthurnax joined, and became a master of while the Greybeards protected him. Vos 09:16, 13 June 2012 (UTC)

Preaching to the choir. It's four in the morning where I am, though, and there are only so many horribly defective pages I can overhaul before I snap and head up to a bell tower for some target practice. Minor EditsThreatsEvidence 09:21, 13 June 2012 (UTC)
Ah, im sorry for adding to it. keep up the good work though, I commend you for your vigilance to the site Vos 09:34, 13 June 2012 (UTC)
