I'm not absorbing dragon souls! Help!
As it says in the the title, I'm not absorbing dragon souls and I need help. I went ahead and killed a couple of dragons today and their bodies didn't burn away and my character didn't absorb any souls. I think it may be because a couple of mods of mine are clashing. Here's my list:

-Improved Blacksmithing!
-The Legend of Zelda: The Blade of Evil's Bane (Skyforge Edition)
-INIGO
-Breezehome Basement
-Fall of the Space Core, Vol. 1
-Surreal Lighting
-Immortal Dragonborn
-Pure Weather
-Dragon Bone Weapons Complete
-Zelda: Majora's Mask Moon (With phases
-Bandolier - Bags and Pouches
-Stones of Barenziah Quest Markers
-Pure Waters

I only just got 'Bandolier - Bags and Pouches' and 'Pure Waters' today and I'm going to uninstall 'Stones of Barenziah Quest Markers' after I'm done with the in-game quest. The only mod in this pack that actually has anything to do with dragon souls is the 'Immortal Dragonborn' mod (which is actually a really cool mod), but if anyone could provide a solution to my problem that would be great!

Stones of Barenziah is not causing it, I have that and its OK.
For a start have you unofficial patches install (a must) and use BOSS to sort your load order.

Maybe your character isn't the real Dragonborn.

Ok all wrong it it is a bug in the game itself ... I mean introduced by Dragonborn or Dawnguard dlc .. the unofficial patches should correct that if not you still can google on mods about dragonsoul absorbtion

I found Dragonborn DLC is the culprit but the patches fix it and also load order will cause it.

That may be true, but my characters sometimes didn't absorb the souls of some dragons even before I got the DLC if I recall correctly. I did manage to acquire souls from other dragons most of the time, so it's probably a bug as SpeedFreak says.

It happens to me too, sometimes i absorb dragon souls and sometimes i don't, it's really weird and annoying.
I have all of the DLC and about 100 mods installed so i have no idea what might be the cause.

If dragon respawns soon after you have killed it in certain places they may not give souls

Yesterday i killed a dragon in a location that i had never discovered before and i didn't absorb it's soul. It's corpse just kind of flopped around a bit and then fell off a mountain.

You say you have all the DLC's and 100 mods do they include unofficial patches.

there's an absorb dragon soul mod that corrects this...you equip it and hit "z" like
using a shout after killing the dragons and you absorb it's soul like normal.

You can use this: http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/31909/?
Or that: http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/31685/?
I personally use the second one, works fine for me ;)

Just letting everyone know, I don't have the DLC's installed. Just mods. Otherwise, it's vanilla.
