Yeah I'm having the same problem with the Earl of Winnipeg saying something about dire bear pelts and making a robe and when I go to fight the dire bear in the top right corner of the city the guard won't let me past. I just bought this game 2 days ago and I downloaded the patch before I played. I also believe I spoke with the Canadian guards before the Earl. I didn't know about this bug and thought I just needed to level up more or something, so I saved multiple times after the glitch and have no way of going back to redo unless I start completely over. If you guys could fix this it would be great.
