As much as I like perma-death as an artistic choice, it has now reached ridiculous levels. Ljufvina showed up dead in Honor's Hubris, and that sent me on a 20 hour plus game repeat. But never mind. Now my ship crew is showing up dead!
I mean, every other day there is one less living soul to wield those oars, and a suspiciously growing heap of corpses on my dock in Raventhorpe. Should I be worried? Is there a serial killer side quest I have totally missed out on? Is it Sigurd? Will Gillian Anderson investigate? What's their motive?
It gets creepier.
There is a World Event in Essexe (Mother). I murdered the murder floofs (wolves), but alas, the person in the hut is also dead. Cause of death unknown. The reeves are investigating, but refuse to give statements to the press. I can reload the location until I am blue in the face, the wolves respawn all lively and still angry. The corpse in the hut? Still a corpse in a hut.
Methinks there is a perma-death pattern here, Mulder. I mean, Ubisoft.
Do you want pictures of the corpses?
I can get you so many pictures of corpses.
So many dead things, we hates them horrible corpses, my precioussss...

@forgeron77 yes, there seems to be a problem with pervaded necessary npcs in a number of quests. It’s happened to me in the world event Silver Wind Elder in Jorvik, and I’ve seen reports of similar in the quests Under the Skin in Snottinghamscire and Losty Glory in Eurvicscire. You, the player, can’t kill them, but they’re vulnerable to environmental damage like fire or beasts like wolves or lynxes. And no matter what you do, these don’t reset, no matter what actions you take. It’s a really game breaking bug preventing those unlocks enough to be affected by it from progressing or completing quests/world events.

@forgeron77 Hey there, thank you for reporting the other NPCs showing up as dead. (Thank you also for your generous humor in spite of the frustration around this issue.) Would you be able to grab some video clips or screenshots of the dead NPCs and label each with their name, and quest (if applicable)? That would be very helpful.
