Unable to open door for quest "Stronghold of the Blades"

Post by dankbladedirk » Thu Jan 17, 2019 8:13 pm

Hi all, I am new to the forums but have been following the Daggerfall Unity project for about on year now. I got into Daggerfall by watching Zaric Zhakaron's youtube videos and have been fascinated by the game since.

I am actually uploading playthroughs of quests to a YouTube channel just as a hobby and for anyone who would want to check out what Daggerfall Unity looks like. I recently tried to do the quest "Stronghold of the Blades" and got to the point where I was to meet a follower of the Underking, however I could not open the door to the house in Sentinel. I tried both bashing the door down and opening with spell to no effect. I just wanted to post here to see if you guys thought it may be a bug or there's something else I can do.

Here is what the UESP wiki says for this quest:

"The specified rendezvous point is always located in a town in the Kingdom of Sentinel. If you are in a far-flung region, be prepared to travel rapidly as your contact will only wait a month. Travel to the town and find the target building. The door may be locked, so have an Open spell handy if you do not want to pick the lock or force the door. Enter the building and speak with the agent, who will greet you"


Thanks again all, great team you have here for an awesome project!

I can't help with the bug report but I wanted to welcome you to the forums :) I've been watching your videos myself and seen that you're using the quest pack mod. Feel free to give any feedback over in the dedicated topic for it :)

That said, I'm done derailing and hope someone can help you :)
Try the first Daggerfall Unity Quest Pack with roughly 210 all-new quests.
I write quests but have no technical knowledge.

Welcome to the forums. :)

Could you please attach a copy of a save next to the broken door? It sounds like something preventing interior from loading. I'll be able to look deeper once I can reproduce.

you could try to open the console and type in "help" to show a list of commands. there is a command to force unlock a door in there.

Thank you for the save.

I can't see any issue with that leg of the quest. The door of the target building is locked, but you can enter steal mode (F1 by default) and pick the lock to enter (100% success at this time). An open spell will do the same. In 0.7.32, you can also bash door with your weapon to enter.

Once inside, I was able to speak with the Blades contact and quest appears to continue normally.

I'm not sure why that isn't working for you. Try disabling your mods to see if that helps? Let me know how you go! :)

I upgraded to the latest pre-alpha (PreAlpha 0.7.32), bashed the door once and it worked, I'm in the house!

Seems like for some reason the door bash did not occur when swinging the weapon in the older build. I also tried an open door spell but did not try stealing to get in. Thanks for taking a look!
