    As recommended in the description, don't bring a follower. I did. She was attracted to a sitting animation on the balcony and pushed the Jarl to his death while we were conversing. The story ended quite abruptly after that, and I know I missed a lot of good content. Great mod from what I did see though.

      Maybe I'm wrong but I think you will have to load a previous save, sorry.

    What's the best place to post to ask some questions about the mod content? I just completed it, but I want to know if I missed anything and I don't want to post an open message here that could potentially spoil things.

      You can post here, just use spoiler warnings.

    Can anyone clarify on the incompatibility with MARPHIN? Is it just the CTD issue with the trapdoor/palace (which seems easy enough to avoid) or are there other issues between the mods?

    It wasn't added that a new power is obtainable on the features page. It really should be added.

    Absolutely astounding mod. Great storytelling and great concept. There was only one issue I had with it and that was: how the heck did the Jarl have access to time travel? It’s quite possible I missed something (an explanation or plot point), but it seems like he was just able to do it because that’s what the plot required of him. I know him and Brol had discussed the subject of time travel but I saw no mention of how he was able to create the portal? Only thing that wasn’t clarified for me. Besides that, everything was spectacular.

      I had assumed it was somehow tied to the

      I can remember who was exactly but in one of the personal logs that you find the first time you explore the city when it is in ruins, it states that the Jarl has been very interested about time travel and used most of his time to research about the subject. And well, it is a plot device.

      Maybe he had a piece of an Elder Scroll or something...

    Are the items placed in the chest in the player's chambers accessible after completing the quest line, or do you need to have what you want to keep on your person when the quest is finished?

      So I just completed the mod, tons of fun. However, I did find the answer to my question, ALL of my items I placed in my chambers chest are now gone and replaced by a random spawn of items. Not sure what happened here but, is there any way to get them back or do I have to reload from before completing the quest?

      Most likely gone. Spawn in what you remember via console, or reload the game.

      I'm going to assume that the "past" locales are another zone in-game verses the "present" locales, thus different containers. You could also open the mod in tesedit and figure out the location ID, then coc there...

    [SPOILER ALERT]

    I just wanted to share something because it happened to me. When you enter the forgotten city and see the old man falling from the tree, the quest says you should read his suicide note. Normally it lies on a flat stone next to the tree, but to me it happened that the note glitched through the stone so I had to use the "tcl" command to reach it.
    I'm not sure, but I guess this happened because I use 3D rocks which makes the flat stone "not-flat". So in case you are like me and searching the whole city + the ruins + the citadel for this note, try to look under the stone ;)

    Else great mod so far tho I'm wondering why "Enter the Lakehouse" is optional, because I didn't find anyway around it :o

    First, congrats on the stand alone game, already wishlisted and waiting for it come out and buy it, looks gorgeous.

    SPOILERS FOR THE GAME AHEAD:


    Now, I have a doubt, hopefully someone can help me out: I´ve spend hours down in the forgotten city, didn´t rush a conclusion to end it. In the end I decided to blame Ryak just to kill him and get his armour, the game tells me to bring him to the Underground Tunnels and do it, so I do, take him there and kill him, either I kill him or I allow the radiation to kill him... which he puts on me, ok. I took the armor and got out of the tunnels, Sentinels have awake and are killing everyone and I´m ask to follow the Jarl to the lake house to travel back in time... problem is, when I do it, I only get back to see everything go to hell again, I get trap then in a loop where I´m constantly asked to get to the lake house with the Jarl, he gets there, I travel back in time, and it all starts over again. I decided then to instead of get out of the tunnels to continue and find the Arbiter (already played this mod a long time ago on a friends game), if I speak to him and convice him that the Jarl crime happen without him knowing it he attacks me once, I shoot him one arrow and the conversation continues, he´s convinced and when return to me time we get out fine until I found Ryak body still there, the tunnel colapses and even though it looks like I got the good ending the sentinels still awake and start killing everyone. So I reloaded and killed the Arbiter, but I was left on the same loop as previously.

    The only way I manage to get out of the loop is to kill the Jarl and get a bad ending. The oldest save I have is with Ryka already following me, and I can´t make him stop following me, that or a save from even before starting the mod. So, what can I do?? What am I doing wrong? Where should I kill Ryka to get the armor if not like this? I can´t even use console commands to kill the sentinels and have them leave alone the citizens in the good ending.

      Fixed, I had to repeat the mod but this time I gave me the chest piece of the armor via console commands, it just not possible to me to complete the mod and get the good ending any other way, as time traveling doesn´t work as intended for me.

      SPOILER: It was made like this on purpose; if you want to complete the mod with the best possible ending, you should break the Dwarves law at least once by killing Rykas to get the armor from him and then repeat the time travel by going back to the lake house, find the other armor pieces after going back into the past, go straight to the Arbiter and see what happens next. :-) There are two good endings though, if I remember correctly, but none of them are possible if you accuse anyone... ;-)
