I have slept in the inn multiple times a day every day. It is not resetting the Lawyer for me. I've been to this dungeon many times, on different days and cleared the entire room, went to the secret room in the NW corner (skeleton laying on ground and stairs going down) and cleared the demons in that room as well. There was a couple times I used up my HP pots and had to go back to town and rest in the middle of this quest, still no Lawyer reset. I read the white book in the abbots room several times. I answered all St Admus questions and he tells me I need to investigate further. The quest is bugged for me. There is literally nothing I can do to further this quest. I know you think I missed something but I've done everything you instructed me to do. I have had other quests fail, like an escort quest that you have to keep the npc alive and guide them back, but I just reload from a saved spot and start over till I get it right. This quest has not failed as it's still in my journal. I really don't think I killed the lawyer because I always try to do the nice thing if I have that option (I'm female and it comes natural lol) or choose the respectful option when talking to NPC's for quests and I don't demand a reward because getting a higher reputation is more important to me than getting extra XP or gold. I already started over. Thanks for your help and your quick responses.
