Literally the second the cutscene ends with guthrum talking to aelfred or whatever, (kingdoms come) as we leave the church to start burning the town guthrum drops dead in the churches doorway preventing me from completing the quest. I was able to work around it by putting his body on my horse and riding to the spot to meet with soma. That triggers the next mission of freeing the Danes. But upon freeing them, guthrums dead body just sits there stuttering loudly unable to play his dialogue cuz he’s dead. Haven’t figured a work around for that yet. How do NPCs lose their immortality and die? Tried reverting to a save before even making the pledge on the alliance map and still happens when I get to that point. 100hrs in, what do I do, just put the game away until they fix npcs?

Yes, there seems to be a problem with permanently dead 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.
If city guards and area bandits can respawn, why not NECESSARY quest/world event nps.
Please, please Ubi, at least add this to your list of known issues!
