Cannot complete quests because I made a mistake

I have three quests I cannot complete.

1) a town hall request, where I accidentally sold the remains of the person I was supposed to be returning (auto pilot at the trader... Looked like a skull)

2) defending the Outpost, Xerla is already dead before I began the request. I ventured into the sector before I was ready and fled from the warewolves, leading them to the Outpost, expecting the guards to take care of them like they do in cities. They died and never regenerated. Now that I am ready for that quest I can't do it. There is no way to complete this as there is no Xerla to contact.

3) the New Artur quest with the actor. I let him die, as I wasn't strong enough back then to fight the manticore. I didn't realise I had to collect his remains and that if I returned when I was strong enough they wouldn't be there.



Short of reloading from an earlier save (don't have one early enough and wouldn't want to replay back so many hours if I did)

Am I screwed? Are these now three uncompletably quests?

Wow. Why didn't you reload right after Laerti's (Xerla's) death? Anyway, i recommend to load from an earlier save (in case there isn't any backup... well, either restart, or deal with it). I'd personally prefer restarting, though. Maybe you could try to play as another class.

When Laerti died I didn't know about the multiple save locations yet, and I saved when I got back to town, not realising it was too late for getting Laerti's remains. I planned to do night at inn and then return.

With Xerla's death, I didn't know until much later that she wouldn't regenerate like guards at the cities do. I first encountered her (and got her killed) around level 9. When I accepted the quest to help her I was at level 15. She had been dead a long time.

I will replay when I complete the game to try as another class, too far in to just abandon current game.

The game is not completable yet, but yes, you have gone too far in levels to restart. Maybe David could do something about this...

Good news:
On Item 1: A missed Town Hall Quest here or there shouldn't be a big deal, game wise, accidentally dropping or selling the quest item is comparable to just letting the Town Hall Quest time-out. If it's stuck in your quest log, than maybe a system can be set up to address the lingering impossible to complete quest.

On Item 3: For future reference: You CAN COMPLETE the World is a Stage Quest. wiht a dead actor so long you grab his necklace as proof of his death. There are three ways to complete the quest, only 1 involves a living actor. Plus the ring for him dying isn't too shabby for when you get in the game. The sword he gives, Icicle, is nice, but the Primal Icicle is a random drop and is a slightly better version of the sword anyways.

Bad News:
On Item 2: Can you report to the Warrior's Guild that the out-post you were supposed to reinforce got killed? If you can't "complete" the quest by reporting the failure, than that too might be a bug option to fix, similar to the Smugglers in the Night Quest.

On Item 3: If you didn't collect the special drop item from the dead actor, than yeah, pretty sure you can't trigger the dead actor end to the quest.

Edit Note: I edited the title of the topic to for more neutral language. You made a mistake, it happens. Don't self-bash over it. :)
