For the love of a 'drop quest' function!
So here I am, having driven Alduin to Sovngarde, talked to the Jarl of Whiterun, Gotten the Greybeards to host a peace conference, and even gotten General Tulius to agree to go to said conference....I didn't take sides in the civil war. I had wanted to remain neutral, as it were.
I can't get Ulfric to open a dialogue with me. Apparently I took the join the stormcloaks quest, and didn't remember doing it. Now, all he says is "Didn't Galmar give you something to do? Go do it!"
Sigh. Fine I'll go kill the stupid ice wraith. I do so. Go back to the palace, and of course, since I'm dumb, I take the oath. Since apparently we hop right from one quest to another, I now have to look for some stupid crown with Galmar, and STILL can't open a dialogue with Ulfric. GAHHHH!
Given this development, I would say that the lack of a drop quest function has got to be one of the biggest oversights on the developer's parts. I can deal with the occassional crashes, NPCs walking in circles and standing on beds...but the lack of such a simple function??? Come on guys, WTF were you thinking???

civil war quest in general is completely boring to me and i wish i could get that stupid crap out of my list as well, but no you cant do anything with that city unless you join 1 side or the other, and in refusing to do that quests makes it so you cant finish other quests that you actually kina like doing like the one where they guys killin people in the streets

this games just f'd up on so many lvls

Well this has become my biggest gripe with Skyrim. Now I have to go through god-knows-how-many quests to get Ulfric to talk to me..and so late in the game, at my current level...hell I could take on the entire imperial army, then turn around and eradicate the stormcloaks if I wanted to, so this lower-level quest chain is going to be little more than a nuisance with crappy obsolete loot. lol

just dont pick up the dragonstone
as long as you dont have it, youre treated just like everyone else ..because you are .. and can easily level very high without any civil drama

but once you do if youre really fast you can catch alduin releasing the other dragons from those round pad things one at a time, its quite a task but very entertaining

That remembers me of my first game. While I have picked up the stone from Bleakfalls Barrow after that I keep exploring a couple of caves around Riverwood and ended up around lvl 12 thanks to fighting, lockpicking and smiting.
When I finally visited Whiterun for the first time I meet that Sam something fellow in the Bannered Mare Inn and ended up in Markath before I had the chance to meet the Jarl of Whiterun, thus never starting the Dragonborn quest. I stayed in the Rift questing and exploring, but after I played over 100 hours I wondered where are all dragons I saw in the screenshots of my friends.
I was over lvl 30 and played over 120 hours before I meet my first dragon.
Suddenly Skyrim became a completely new game to me. That was an amazing experience. Interesting to note was that until this point all the Wordwalls are occupied with bandits instead of dragons.

This is classic. I bet it made the main quest much easier at that point...

Sounds like a bug, you should definitely be able to talk to Ulfric without getting involved in the Civil War, because I've done it. Which doesn't make it any less frustrating, I guess!
Draughir Mar 8 @ 3:23pm 
I probably would have if I hadn't (at some point..probably one night at like 2am) started the join the stormcloaks quest
gnewna Mar 8 @ 3:26pm 
Ah, yeah, I've just looked it up, it's definitely a bug (though one that's supposedly been fixed by a patch, but... yeah, that doesn't always seem to work so well) but it ought to clear up after the Battle for Whiterun. Unless you've already done that... Oh dear! Hope you get to talk to the bloody man soon.
Draughir Mar 8 @ 3:30pm 
I hope so too. I had wanted to stay out of the civil war...as a character like mine would most likely do. An assassin would be neutral until the gold starts flowing.

Hello! Hmm. Thanks for your post! While looking for a forge first, before turning in "The White Phial", instead I found the dead girl in the cemetary, that began a quest in search of, "The Butcher", and then while looking for someone to get permission from in order to officially do the homicide quest, I accidentaly iniated joining the Stormcloaks. My intent this time, was to play the Dark Brotherhood first, to see what happens if the Emperor is dead before you join a side in the Civil War. So I came here to see if others might know what to do about it. But I see now, that unless I go back to a way early save and undo a lot of effort, that I'm eventually going to have to betray someone I made friends with, unless I give up on being in the DB. Thus far I've never joined either the DB or the TG, so I'm becoming rather curious to play them for a change of pace, because of what I've read in posts in this forum and elsewhere. So, I guess, good luck to us all, as we try to deal with the consequences of our accidental in-game actions, as I'm so tired of starting over because of every little mistake.
