Some categories of quests can be distinguished by the decorative knotwork displayed alongside the quests' titles in your journal.


  • Quests may disappear from the bottom of the list in your journal as other quests and objectives are added or completed. This affects both active and completed quests. Missing active quests are still active, and will reappear if objectives are completed, but only the newly completed objectives will appear; old objectives, whether completed or not, won't be displayed. This typically occurs when your total quests (both active and complete) are well over 200.
    Mod Notes: Most likely, the limit is exactly 255 when you include completed miscellaneous quests. This is the maximum value that can be stored in a single byte.
    • It may be possible to mitigate this issue by completing the oldest active quests first. That way, only completed quests will disappear.
    • This bug can also be used to effectively remove infinitely repeating quests such as The Dark Brotherhood Forever or "Talk to the Companions leaders for work" from your quest list. Complete these quests early, and they'll eventually disappear as you complete other quests.
