So the next thing I need to do is talk to Neloth, but every time I get close to his big mushroom house, the two unkillable servants in front start attacking me and blow me to pieces. even when I best them, they come right back into action... is this a glitch, or is there something i'm missing here?!?
This most likely occurred because when you used bend will on the nearby earth stone for the main quest, you may have hit or killed a civilian in the following battle. Therefore, you have a bounty, and everyone is hostile. I recommend either reloading, or if it isn't possible, to to rave rock, talk too guard, and they should take you in for murder. Serve your sentence and you'll be fine. Hope this works!
Close your eyes, cover your ears, listen. The world around you is not as it seems...
You are diseased, everyone will attack u, even the guards. Go to a Shrine (I went to the one in WhiteRun and clicked on the Shrine of Talos outside next to the big statue). Doing that fixed everyone being hostile to me
