Every time I go through the quest Season Unending, I think I have chosen the neutral route (I even followed a walkthrough on one occasion where the outcome was score 3-3), but after I finish the main quest, kill Alduin, and start clearing bandits from forts and so on, some are taken over by Imperials and I have to start making large detours in order not to kill them. I don’t want to play the Civil War questline, I just want both factions to treat me as neutral so I can pass through their forts and camps.
I have never killed a member of either faction. I have no civil war mods in my game. I don’t want to play the civil war.
Before Season Unending I can walk into any camps without any problems, but after Season Unending I am called 'Unblooded' by some of the Stormcloaks, and if I approach an Imperial camp they draw their swords and say things like "you're trespassing, get away or else" or words to that effect.
I have been informed by other players that after Season Unending they can still walk through any civil war faction’s camp and forts, but I can’t.
I was hoping for a console command to set things to neutral again, even if that changes who owns which city.
