  3. If a fix to the bug is known, please provide it, but avoid use of first-person-anecdotes: such discussions belong on the appropriate forum board and not the article.
  •  PC   360   PS3  If the quest points the Dragonborn to any of the following places which are already cleared, the game will crash:
  •  PC  The console command to skip this part of the quest is setstage cr10 20.
  •  PC    360  In some instances this quest is given again by Aela after already completing it once, rendering it uncompletable since she already has the plans. When asking for work, other Companions may or may not inform the player they are doing something for Aela, or sometimes they may actually give an additional quest. On PC the setstage console command does not work to fix this problem.
  •  360  If quest is at Faldar's Tooth, the quest marker will not show up and the Silver Hand Stratagem will not be there.
  •  PC  If quest is at Gallows Rock, the quest marker will not show up and the Silver Hand Stratagem will not be there.
