Issue description
After destroying the meteor in the Temple of Akbaa, the player comes across a wounded guard in the City of Arx which advances the main quest. However, it's possible to unknowingly skip this essential trigger by portaling directly into the Kingdom of Arx. Exiting through the trap door in the jail area will remove the wounded guard from the game world, thereby presenting a game-breaking situation. The quest journal will state that the player should return to the kingdom; however, entering the kingdom will now result in the player being inexplicably spawned into the kingdom's jail cell with no apparent means of escape.
Steps to reproduce this issue
  • Destroy the meteor in the Temple of Akbaa.
  • Enter The Prison by using the door to the left of the meteor.
  • Take the portal from The Big Collapse to The Human Kingdom.
  • Exit The Human Kingdom through the trap door in the kingdom's jail.
  • Enter The Human Kingdom.

I bumped into this too. The proper quest trigger appears to rely on exiting the Temple of Akbaa via the Tavern entrance. If you exit via the secret door to The Prison then you'll get stuck later on.

The problem only became apparent to me after using the jail trap door and then trying to get back into the castle. On entry it teleports me to the jail with the POV locked in place and looking at my character, as if to replay the cutscene that never happens.

I was able to get past it by loading a save just before I went to the jail area. I went back to the Temple and exited via the right exit. This allowed me to continue with the game.
