So I've gotten myself into the documented bug with Delphine & Esbern getting stuck @ the Karthspire.
I used the PC console code of
setstage MQ203 280 as I COULDN'T get them to get passed the first puzzle.
Now they are STILL stuck at the first bridge, and I got 3 recruits for the blades, however Esbern does not want to talk to me further about what to do with the recruits.
I've tried shout throwing them across the first bridge, but nothing works.
If I teleport them to the temple, they just start walking backwards to the SAME location at the beginning, this is the most annoying thing I have encountered in this game.
Can someone offer some tips? Teleporting works to get them to the temple, but I can't keep them there. Maybe reset the first bridge somehow? That might bump them through the puzzles?
Reloading a save game prior to this event for me is not an option anymore unless I want to forfeit 20+ hours of play ;(
