I will see if the same happens with my own quest Jay, there may be a more general issue with TO. I'll check and report back.

Thanks for checking, and don't worry too much about it. There's a reason we save and load games. If the problem is irreconcilable, at least there are ways to avoid it.

I suspect the problem is caused by the quest event spawning enemies. This in turn triggers travel option to do a text popup for enemies interrupting your travel. This gets forced on top of the quest text.

Think I ran into a bug. I did Shedungent. Fast traveled back to Wrothgaria. There I got popups for a bunch of letters from different factions. I saved and quit for the day.

Today I loaded up the save and fast-traveled to Wayrest. Upon arriving I get a popup for a letter from Wayrest. But the letter in my inventory is the Daggerfall letter, which I already got. I reloaded and made sure I did not have the letter already, but nope.

Another minor thing. When talking to Gortwog, he gives you two pages of text. Then rewards you with an item, then the two pages of text repeats and he gives you gold. Maybe limit it to one reward unless you can avoid the text repeating?

Thanks for reporting it. A silly mistake of mine; the tasks I had to use were just copy-pasted 7 times, with individual variations. I forgot to vary that one. I was sure it was going to happen sooner or later!

There's actually a simpler reward task I can use for it. It doesn't give you the triumphant inventory screen, but it'll avoid this problem. I kind of want to report it as an engine bug since I'm pretty sure classic didn't do this (there's a witch quest where you get a triple reward using this same command), but with where DFU is, I might just leave it alone.

I'll make the changes today, thanks Ralzar :)

Progressing slowly along the main quest.

First of all, I did the Sentinel bit and daaaaamn yoooouuu! I spent way too long finding the puzzle room, and gettign through the puzzle to discover that was NOT where the quest objective was anymore :D

After you kill a certain lord, you get a letter from Daggerfall. This happens too fast I think. I barely got out of the castle and walked the short stretch to the nearest settlement when I got the letter. This might need a bit more room to feel plausible? Unless you get it by some magical means. Although granted, the original Main Quest had a lot of implausibly efficient messengers :D

I legitimately want it to spawn there and I can't figure out how. I used the exact same code as in the original Main Quest and it just doesn't show up there. Anyone able to tell me how, I'm listening!

I had to jam it in there because it's really at the end-game; you might have one or two major journeys ahead of you, but this game is pretty much wrapped up now. I'll add a delay of a 1 to 3 weeks though, at least the travel to the final two dungeons should give room enough to reason with it. Thanks for the feedback again.
