I really hope I don't end up figuring this out before I get an answer, but here goes. I've become stuck.
I'm in the haunted woods doing the murder quest. Decided to investigate further, and get a few things and clues. The Brightcap, the message at the bottom of the chest, a note written by a crazy person, etc. From here I seem to be lost, and can't find any other interactables. There's that weird woman coordinating 3 skeletons to dance, but talking to her does nothing. Am I missing something?
I've just been popping potions of hiding and running around touching everything until it runs out, where I load my save and try again.
