I am in the latter part of Eschalon Book 2 and I have encountered a major bug, it seems. First problem is that the townspeople in Everdale suddenly vanished. There is no one left in the village. I went ahead with the game anyway since the situation was not game-breaking. However, I am at the part where I need to return the Crux of Fire to Korren at the Guild of Crius Vindica and there is no one there neither.
Has anyone encountered this before? I searched online but I have not found anything relevant. Am I perhaps missing something? I tried to verify/repair using Gog Galaxy and it does not fix the bug. Let me know what you think.
