Waiting Follower and intentionally killed twin Dead Thralls at the base of the Castle ramp
I'm on the xbox 360. My follower, Brelyna Maryon, was also my homestead steward.
When I came out the first time having been banished, one of my two killed dead thralls was gone, but the other one was still there dead next to my live horse, and my follower who I had told to wait by my horse was gone also. I tried to get another potential follower, my housecarl, to follow me, but they said "Looks like you already have someone with you..." One thrall was an electromancer, and the other one a fire mage.
The solution was to reload a prior save grab a vampire healing solution off of the castle's RHS banquette table far end as you face in from the entrance then be banished. Both of my twin killed dead thralls were next to my horse again like they were prior to going into the castle.
My follower had somehow been trapped inside the castle still waiting--I had looked high and low using Alteration detect both dead and life spells. I waited 3 x 24 hours at the base of the castle ramp (where I had asked the follower to wait) before entering the castle, after which the game said that my follower got tired of waiting and has left my service. I had that follower as my steward of my homestead property / house so I went back there to await their arrival.
I found my bard was playing, but they were bugged situated inside the brickwork walls of my main fireplace--I had already looked around the outside of my property's house for my steward, but they were no where to be found. I found only my housecarl marching around with his lit torch. To remedy my bard being inside the brick wall, I just waited one hour, then both my bard was out from the chimney brick work and my steward came walking in the front door of my house--PROBLEMS SOLVED. I then re-asked my steward to follow me again, et voila... back in business. So, I was able to get her to help me assist Isran fighting the encroaching / attacking vampires back at the Fort Dawnguard home base. 18.104.22.168 22:35, 26 March 2017 (UTC)
