Journal questlines of quests finished before loading Tribunal are never closed
I recently started a character on only the
Morrowind.esm game data file, started and finished some quests and then continued the character with also the
Tribunal.esm game data file loaded (and others such as
Bloodmoon.esm) – I did so because apparently Tribunal is needed for questlines to be followed in the journal.
It appears that questlines of characters finished before loading
Tribunal.esm for the first time never get closed. So they hang around forever, see this screenshot, where the issue is apparent for anyone who’s done the Mage’s Guild – you can see several questlines for consecutive quests by Ajira listed.
