Possible bug?[edit]

At the very end of The Path of Knowledge - that'd be after the player speaks with Hermaeus Mora, chooses his reward and then finally activates the book on the pedestal one last time to be transported back to Solstheim - I realized the black book in question was not in my inventory anymore (unlike Waking Dreams and also unlike the few others I have collected and read since then), thus barring me from entering that particular section of Apocrypha, and possibly choose a different reward at a later time. Has this happened to anyone else?

I'm quite sure it was there at some point, since during my first run through Epistolary Acumen, I fell to my 'death' and was consequently sent back to the reading room in Nchardak. I suppose I wouldn't have been able to read it again and start over, if it hadn't been there. 09:30, 10 December 2012 (GMT)

The Gardener of Men[edit]

This quest page seems to be a duplicate of The Gardener of Men, how does it appear in the quest log? --Alfwyn (talk) 20:59, 11 December 2012 (GMT)

I'm guessing this quest doesn't actually exist, and it's actually just part of the Gardener of Men quest. It was created as a placeholder before any actual game data was being added. I didn't realize this as I was standardizing the page to meet the other similarly-named quests, but it should probably end up being a redirect to that quest page. — ABCface 22:22, 11 December 2012 (GMT)
I concur. Having entered this book, this quest does not appear as it does for Hidden Twilight. I am also of the opinion that this quest doesn't exist. It would serve no purpose, as Gardener of Men is about "learning the hidden knowledge of Epistolary Acumen". --Enodoc (talk) 22:41, 2 January 2013 (GMT)
Now that I've actually played through the questline (hadn't yet when making my previous comment here) I can say that I definitely think this needs to be redirected to that quest page. If no one objects within one week, I'll make the change. — ABCface 22:54, 2 January 2013 (GMT)
