I helped the Imp Hero and cleared out the spider forest. When I returned to the Chieftain's hut he was regaling everybody with his deed. However, when the forced dialogue sequence ended my characters were stuck in limbo. They couldn't move and the pointer was gone. I could pause/unpause but little else. I tried cutting the dialogue sequence short but the glitch recurred. Is this a common or known glitch? I'm running US v1.45.
Thanks,
CK

It's a common glitch.
You can try leaving one of your chars at the other end of the village, and talking to the imp hero with the other.
Alternatively, Click on the X symbol instead of waiting for the dialogue to end.

Or you can skip the quest of course.

Moving DK away and cueing the dialogue solo did the trick. Many thanks!

I just avoided the imp hero "glitch" thinking I was going to skip that quest (since it doesn't appear to have any exp associated with it). But when I came back to town where everyone was supposedly dead, I accidentally wandered into that area and ran through the whole imp hero cut scene (was that a creepy giggle at the end or what?). When the imp hero ran away, everything went back to normal. (Which was great, since I hadn't saved since coming back from the crystal quest.) So, apparently, this "glitch" is also dependent on when you trigger the cut scene. Strangely enough, his wife was also still around. I'm half tempted to run through this act again with half the quests open to see how many of the quest NPCs hang around after Samuel supposedly sterilizes the town. Seems a little odd, but probably necessary due to the game mechanics.

Stignix is alive? Or alive if you get him very late to the village (after Shaman realm?)
Imp needs potion => not sure, if alive or dead
imp hero is alive? Or alive if you get him from the Spider Area after Shaman realm?
his wife is alive
IIRC the 2 sisters are alive? Not sure

Someone else that ran into a problem with the imp hero cut scene just tried it repeatedly 4 or 5 times until it worked.

Pfff.
First I got stuck "in limbo", then when I reloaded the quest became unsolvable. The "hero"started bragging, but then the only option is now to X the conversation.
This seems to be because the dialogue-history STILL contains the dialogue from the first time (before reloading!).

version: gog

Otherwise I'm pretty impressed with the game until now.

EDIT: nevermind. When got close speech activated. Also left DK behind.
