Dragonborn DLC: Quests failing to start?
This is probably my 5th run of one of my characters and some quests and scripted events are failing to start or occur. Glover Mallory never has any dialogue pertaining to getting the Ancient Nord Pickaxe or his Bonemold formula so I can't start it, Bujold and the occupied Thirsk Hall have no starting dialogue to start either of their respective quests, Talvon never tests out his spell outside for me to see, and even more frustrating is entering the Black Book in Miraak's Temple for the first time and having the starting scripts for dialogue and the event itself NEVER start. I've completed all the quests available within Skyrim, haven't activated Dawnguard yet.

I have all the latest (up to today) Unofficial DLC patches sans the High Res DLC and patch, and I don't think any of my mods affect scripts in the Dragonborn DLC save maybe Morrowloot 4E edition, Timing is Everything, and Enhanced Cities: Raven Rock. There isn't even a Shadowmark on Glover's front door anymore for some odd reason @_@

I am doing something wrong here and I don't know what it is. BOSS manages my load order.

I know you have BOSS, but BOSS is not perfect, tell me what is your load order with Boss is

This is the right load order: Unoffical Skyrim patch, Dawnguard.esm, Unoffical Dawnguard patch, Hearthfires.esm, Unoffical Hearthfires patch, Dragonborn.esm, Unoffical Dragonborn patch, Hi Res Texture pack 1, 2 & 3 and then Unoffical Hi Res Texture patch. To confirm this go to any of the Unoffical patch mod page and you will see this for yourself.

Pretty sure you have to join Thieves Guild to see the shadowmark

Have you unofficial Dragonborn patch?. When getting to Raven rock talk to the smithy that when he will ask you to get his pick also set you off into Raven rock Mine quest line..

Also, I explained that I did every quest I needed to do (except the main quest, that can be held off for a long time and Dark Brotherhood, which I destroyed), including the Thieve's Guild (my favorite questline).

Also, I have NOT UNINSTALLED ANYTHING nor ADDED ANYTHING. No new mods added in this playthrough, nor anything taken away. And yet something's still wrong.

Hi

I have been playing Skyrim for around 10 months and have never had an issues with game play or loading. I don't have any mods installed.

The last time I logged in, I found that the main Dragonborn story line is no longer showing and all related progress to this quest appears lost. Steam also seems to have reset the hours I have played and achievements I have unlocked.

Before I attempt to load a specific save or continue the game, a message appears, telling me that 'the save relies on content that is no longer present and some objects may no longer be available'. However, all my saved files are still in the pc folder, showing the progress I have made. I can also view the saves I have made, relating to the quest, when I go to the 'load' option. The game will not take me back to the location however and just places me at my last save location.

I have tried re-installing the game and also have looked at support, which talks about moving files from another library. I am not technologically advanced whatsoever and am having real problems performing any of the apparent solutions or fixing this.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Sorry in advance if this is totally the wrong place to be posting this :)

The last few playthroughs lately in the Dragonborn DLC were terrible. Many dialogue options that are supposed to appear (getting all EE 33 pendants, getting an Ancient Nord pickaxe and Bonemold formula, helping Bujold or the Rieklings kill one another) simply don't, like they never existed. I'm not sure what's causing it. What I found just as interesting is that when in Solstheim, I can fast travel to Skyrim no problem. When trying to get back to Solstheim, however, no fast travel arrow appears at all and I'm forced to book passage at Windhelm again.
