    I just got up to completing the quest "Season Unending" and I have come across a giant bug, it seems that one of the npc's (Esbern) cannot talk even though I just updated my game like wtf bbq. This is a video of what happens, he talks you see him making movements etc but he does nothing.

    Here is what happens... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hmb0rTi5R88

    Perhaps this should be under "The Official Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim" thread?

    Tbh, it's preferred that technical support has it's own thread so that if someone else encounters the bug needs the fix, it's not buried inside a >100 page thread :)

    1nf3rn0x, could it be because there's another quest or something that you need to do before talking to him?

    Aah, seems it's a common problem.

    This place has the details: http://www.uesp.net/wiki/Skyrim:Season_Unending#Bugs

    Youtube video apparently has the fix

    The best fix is completing the Civil War quest chain. That's why I never encountered this quest because I already ended the Civil War (and thus it would be pointless to have a peace treaty). :p

    That's a different quest, and a different bug. :laugh:

    Whoops, lol sorry :eek: I had just read there about Esbern not speaking and thought it was the same situation! :eek:

    On second thoughts, now that I checked out the link, dammit I didn't know that you could
    negotiate a peace treaty
    instead of taking sides. Wish I had done that...

    You could only do that if you essentially ignored the Civil War and went ahead through the main quest chain.
