Word of Power, the constant passage of time. On a small scale refers to solitary moments or events. On a broader scale refers to the passing of the ages and the cycles of the world. Paarthurnax also notes ‘The dov are children of Akatosh. Thus we are specially... attuned to the flow of Time. Perhaps also uniquely vulnerable.’ (0003FA42)
