Loving the game! 20hrs in, been to the bridge alliance for the main quest but not theleme yet. Currently doing the logging expedition side quest and have to go ask de Coucillon for his advice.
When I get to the Manor the quest marker leads to an orange glow on the kitchen counter (no item to interact with, just a glow), and if I go and talk to him it just gives me options to ask about his role or leave.
I tried wandering into the archives to see if I could skip his dialogue, but the required item won't appear without talking to him.
Any advice? I'm not keen on rerolling and starting again this far in.
