  • Can't start Blood on Ice. Cant buy Hjerim Hashbrown

    It appears I have missed the graveyard scene for the quest and nothing I do will trigger it.

    Hjerim's door requires a key and talking to the guards and people do nothing.

    Talking to Jorleif about buying the house only makes him say that there's a mess.

    creating new question as these other questions are similar, but don't share my exact symptoms. Also, it looks like some of them have started them and broken them (because its so full of bugs)

  • Possible Duplicate: How can I start the Blood on the Ice quest? This answer indicates that if the steward in Windhelm won't sell me the house or give me the quest to find the murderer, then I can start it by finding a body in the graveyard and talking to the guard. I've visited the graveyard at night, but I can't find the body or the guard. What should I do? Or is that answer incorrect?

  • According to UESP, the 1.4 patch included a fix for the "...issue where the player house in Windhelm would not clean up properly". However, after applying the update and loading a game where I'd already completed Blood on the Ice and fully upgraded Hjerim, my house is still a mess! Is there anything that needs to be done to trigger the cleanup? Or, is this something that is only fixed for new games or games where the quest has not yet been completed?

  • Can't buy Hjerim in Windhelm Brittany henriquez

    For the house in wind helm you have to complete the quest blood on the ice, but there's a glitch in my game and it won't let me start the quest. The graveyard is empty at night , no dead body. Really far back in the game I had killed nilsine and tova killed herself but when I went to the house of shattershield her body wasn't there, only her note. So I can't get the key to hjerim from her or the steward so is there another place I could get the key?

  • In the quest, Retaking Thirsk, you need to help a group of Nords kill all the Rieklings in the Thirsk Mead Hall. While in the quest, The Chief of Thirsk Hall, you need to help the Rieklings in the Thirsk Mead Hall kill all of the aforementioned Nords. This means that I will have to choose a side. What are the advantages and disadvantages of siding with either the Nords or the Rieklings in these quests? The UESP wiki states that (from the Retaking Thirsk article): This quest has no rewards except making a blacksmith and a Heavy Armor trainer available[verification needed— see talk

  • Some folks have had trouble with their mannequins disappearing once you hang armor on them. My problem's worse - for me, the mannequin never appeared in the first place! I bought Vlindrel Hall, the player house in Markarth. There is supposed to be a mannequin in the living room once you buy the living room furnishings, as I did before I went inside the house for the first time. Unfortunately... the mannequin truly doesn't exist, or has glitched itself into a place the player cannot reach or see. How might I fix this?

I'm playing the PC version.
