I was exploring the library in the magic tower in the badlands. I should note that I figured out how to open the door using the runes on the floor and the door was open, but I did not exit the library. Instead I continued exploring the library. I found a number of statues and chests. And then I was attacked by a bunch of spiders (right near the spider egg on the floor near the back wall of the library). I defeat the spiders, but at the end of the battle my group goes into a cut scene standing over the body of a bunch of Soraks. I skipped the rest of the tower and the final fight. I was able to grab the crown and cut off the Sorak head, but the Soraks are not lootable. And I cannot leave the room because I never actually opened the door to it (which apparently only opens from the outside). Eventually, the Soraks respawn and I actually do fight them, but I can't beat them because it has been way too long since I rested. I assume there is a long rest location somewhere between the library and the end fight, but of course I skipped all that. I reloaded my auto-save at the beginning of the spider fight and I was able to repeat the bug. I am guessing I will have to restart somewhere farther back in the exploration of the tower and explore the library before I open the door... I don't know if opening the door is what triggered the bug, but I am curious to find out.
I should also note that just during the very short spider fight, I saw at least 7 critical misses... I know RNG can suck sometimes but statistically that is way too many. On the other hand, maybe that is just a fluke.
Anyway, thanks for making this great game. I am really enjoying it.
