Missing Apprentices

I liked this MOD because there are many hidden mysteries in the world of SKYRIM and this shows a possible solution for the disappearance of the Missing Apprentices.
I hope it serves as a stimulus for other MODS similar to this. Congratulations for the initiative. Liked it. :steamhappy:

I downloaded and played this mod ages back, but wonder if this will clash with the Cutting Room Floor mod as I think that mod has this quest implemented too.
ChaoticKim87 May 29, 2016 @ 2:58pm 
It always bothered me that the mission to find them was broken/unfinished (almost like the game WANTS to forget them), even though I found each of them and their stuff. I super glad that someone finally made a mod to finish this quest!

I'm also having trouble with Rundi, he's alive and I can't pickpocket or kill him for the dagger. Also Yisra is not there, only the quest marker in the middle of a scorched patch of earth & no way to loot the necklace.

Nevermind, found the item id!

@Kain-Xavier hey there, the last item I need is Rundi's dagger, and he's still alive and I've reloaded my previous saves and nothing's changed, and I can't kill him. Help?
Kain-Xavier  [author] Jun 12, 2015 @ 2:17pm 
@TigerInMansClothing She's in there. I just chose not to showcase Yisra as I did not make any significant changes to her.
TigerInMansClothing May 12, 2015 @ 12:41am 
From the screenshots I don't see the scrispy coprse of girl obcessed with fire magic.
Kain-Xavier  [author] Apr 29, 2015 @ 3:24pm 
@belleim Try saving and reloading, the knife should be moved into Rundi's inventory.
Kain-Xavier  [author] Apr 29, 2015 @ 3:23pm 
@biltart_clom The reward is unique to the mod. The original quest reward was just leveled gold if I'm not mistaken.
Teuccio Apr 21, 2015 @ 1:41pm 
I cant find the dagger after the explosions of the 4 ice runes, but the marker is still on the center of the circle and i cannot fulfill the quest. Any suggestion?
EOTeal Apr 17, 2015 @ 6:52am 
Yay, I've always been curious about the broken missing apprentices quest, thanks for fixing it c:
TigerInMansClothing Mar 26, 2015 @ 10:16am 
You can actually find a coupleof the Appretices, well their corpes anyway... But it's not obvious that they were the missing apprentices when you stumble across their bodies in the wilds of Skyrim.
biltart_clorn Dec 6, 2014 @ 9:59pm 
I am unsure why it didn't make the final cut. The reward is most useful for a guild member. They might have thought it was overpowered.

Good mod, nice fix, but when it seemed like Phineas didn't give a shit he reminded me of one of my college professors.

thank you!
Kain-Xavier  [author] Aug 12, 2014 @ 12:59am 

I suspect you may have a mod that either alters Rundi or the Frozen Corpse ability attached to him.

You can use the following console command to obtain Rundi's dagger:

player.additem 000ECD53 1

had a problem where rundil was still alive and unkillable
Kain-Xavier  [author] Jun 19, 2014 @ 10:03pm 

It sounds like you're talking about Labyrinthian but that's a different quest. Missing Apprentices does not require you to go into any dungeon. All of its NPC's, sans Phinis Gestor, can be found out in the wilderness.
~BlackStarFox~ Jun 19, 2014 @ 2:53pm 
@Kain-Xavier The skeletal dragon, pretty much in the first room.
Brother_Hank Jun 16, 2014 @ 6:03am 
friggin finally!
Warsun Jun 1, 2014 @ 9:59pm 
AH!I didn't know that.OK.Fair enough.
Kain-Xavier  [author] Jun 1, 2014 @ 9:53pm 

I'm not really a fan of leveled gear so I'll keep the reward as is. Thank you for the suggestion though!
Warsun May 31, 2014 @ 9:51pm 
Yeah but does it scale up as you level then complete the quest for higher stats?A lot of people wont take it for that.
J R Sparks May 22, 2014 @ 1:17pm 
Yeah after reading tyhe mod...the unoffrical skyrim patch...I had to download all the other related mods and that seems to have fixed it...(for now) oh and I always wondered how this quest ended....:)
Kain-Xavier  [author] May 22, 2014 @ 11:49am 
@J R Sparks

My mod alters a quest that is already present in the base game and in no way affects dragons.
J R Sparks May 22, 2014 @ 5:45am 
hmm I have had to uninstall and reinstall skyrim due to non absorbing dragon tyo do I hope this quest isnt' the conflicter
The Varangian Apr 21, 2014 @ 10:23pm 
thank you but i am not sure what mod might have done this
Kain-Xavier  [author] Apr 21, 2014 @ 6:32pm 

I suspect you may have a mod that either alters that NPC or the Frozen Corpse ability attached to Rundi.

You can use the following console command to obtain Rundi's dagger:

player.additem 000ECD53 1

rundi isnt frozen and is unkillable
Kain-Xavier  [author] Apr 12, 2014 @ 12:12pm 

"freeformwinterholdcollegeb" is the quest ID so I'm not sure what else you're wanting. You would need to use the quest ID to change stages via console.

Also, the current quest stage is very relevant to troubleshooting the issue as are the script variables you can see when you enter in the "sqv questid" command.

You don't have to troubleshoot the issue any more if you don't want to but I can't help you (or correct a potential problem) otherwise.
Kain-Xavier  [author] Apr 12, 2014 @ 8:07am 

And you're not able to turn the dagger into Phinis?

Also, you can use "sqv freeformwinterholdcollegeb" to view the current quest state as well as other variables related to the quest.

Also, also, you're not running Arthmoor's Cutting Room Floor as well are you? Missing Apprentices will conflict with it since they both make changes to the same quest.
mathew32 Apr 10, 2014 @ 3:44pm 
Yeah I am also having problems with Rundi still being alive. Thanks for the item code.
Archon Mar 22, 2014 @ 10:12am 
Thanks mate. Nice mod.
Evan Mar 19, 2014 @ 1:03pm 
Just a random comment, I broke my skyrim, well steam did with like a error, 15, 16, 17, something
Kain-Xavier  [author] Mar 17, 2014 @ 7:11pm 

First, I just want to apologize for the late response. Now to help you...

I'm not sure why Rundi's alive or why console commands are not working on him. However, you should be able to advance the quest by adding a copy of his dagger into your inventory. Use the following console command and then speak with Phinis Gestor:

player.additem 000ECD53 1

Rundi's still alive, and i cant seem to find a way to kill him, any help? I shoot arrows, magic, hit him with a sword, shouts, consle commands, i even spawned in a bunch of dragons, nothing happened. Please help!
Evan Jan 5, 2014 @ 8:11am 
Yay, someone made a fix for this I never bothered to search for, for some reason :(. Sub, Tumbs up, faved
~BlackStarFox~ Oct 26, 2013 @ 5:47pm 
I always kind of wondered where they fucked off too after the dragon....
nacoran Oct 16, 2013 @ 9:39am 
Okay, well, in a couple levels I should be able to see if I can't pick pocket an equipped item. Maybe Rundi gets to live. :)
Kain-Xavier  [author] Oct 7, 2013 @ 9:32pm 

If Rundi's still alive, it sounds like one of the mods you're running alters POI_IceFormScript or is preventing it from running. My mod does not alter the default script attached to Rundi. It only makes it so that Rundi's frozen corpse ability is re-applied each time you enter his cell.
nacoran Oct 4, 2013 @ 1:45pm 
Rundi isn't frozen in my game. I do have a ton of other mods running, but nothing I can think of that would cause that. (I tried turning Skyrim Hunting on and off to make sure that wasn't the issue- they mentioned they might interfere with taking objects off of people). I'm all for finding the missing students, but I don't want to have to kill one to get his dagger! (Maybe my character on the previous playthrough, but this one is a straight up hero.) :)
Kain-Xavier  [author] Sep 28, 2013 @ 8:13pm 
Want more cut quests? Rogue Wizard is out now !
Kain-Xavier  [author] Aug 17, 2013 @ 12:02pm 
v1.31 is out on Steam and Skyrim Nexus! This build includes another fix which will hopefully stop the quest restart issue once and for all. :)
Doom Nord Aug 15, 2013 @ 9:13pm 
Thx man!
Kain-Xavier  [author] Aug 14, 2013 @ 10:42pm 

I haven't forgotten about patching this mod. I've got a potential fix I'm hoping to release some time late tomorrow or on Friday.
Kain-Xavier  [author] Aug 14, 2013 @ 10:41pm 

I'm sorry it took me so long to get back to you but here's the form ID for the Robes:

XX012582 where XX is the load order for the mod.
TheFlyingDixieCups Aug 6, 2013 @ 7:27pm 
Really surprised that this is the only mod fixing the Missing Apprentices quest. I've wanted to be able to do it for a while. Surprised Bethesda put all the work into it, placing the items and whatnot, and didn't finish it. Ah well. Thanks a lot for this mod!
Doom Nord Aug 2, 2013 @ 9:12pm 
Can i grab the item code for the robes? i put them on a manican** in proudspire while i had a mod active for it now i had to disable it and the robes went away :(. Or if theres another way to obtain them again that'd b sweet! anyway Great mod. i thought that it was odd that there was no closure to such a big question of where the whole GROUP of mages went before the players.
