The npc Riply who should be in a room next to the locked door to north ward in Sanitarium is missing. Can't get into that room in any other way, can't progress. The statues does not talk to me anymore, and all dialogs with other NPCs in Sanitarium are exhausted.
the game is just broken. It's a beta. You can ignore bugged side quests where the game does not notice that you actually did what you were suppose to do. I am not a tester, I wouldn't do anything else If I uploaded every single broken quest (The man who waits, At all Costs, Supply and Demand, and even another story quest Never far from the queen which I had to complete several times before the game noticed, to name just a few biggest ones).
I am not going back 5 hours to trace where I made some game breaking decision.
