not a clue where to start with a fix for this so i just thought i'd ask here
You may be missing the hotfix - Main Mirror In case that doesn't help try asking one of the mouths instead for now
Thanks for the quick reply. The hotfix is installed and attempting to join via the mouths results in this:
this is, of course, a new game started after 17.09 was released
Sure is awkward, I thought that was fixed already. For now you can still join by asking the mouths in "Sadrith Mora, Telvanni Council House". As an apology have a tip for getting out of dialogue loops without having to quit: open the console, select NPC and type "goodbye".
No worries at all. I'll make sure to post again if it was something obvious I simply missed in the update process. Thanks as always for your hard work (and the tip), guys.
