So I met up with Erandur at the inn in dawnstar to start the nightmare mission. I finish the dialog and he requests that I follow him immediately. Only one problem, he doesn't move.
So I'm all like what the hell man. I'm trying to nudge him, I sprint into him a couple times, nothing. Still not moving.
And as I am getting ready to unload a mean fus ro dah on this idiot, I realize something. The reason he is not moving is he is waiting for the bard to finish her song. The tale off tongues, to be exact. He is so enchanted by the story of the dragonborn that he refuses to leave.
After the bard delivers her final line "for his story is over and the dragons are gone," he slowly applauds and we proceed out of the Inn. That is respect for the dragonborn right there, bros.
So now me and Erandur are homies. --- If I ever cared about what you had to say, I'd stick a shotgun in my mouth and pull the trigger with my toes.
