Ok since this is a bugs and issues forum I thought I'd post this here. I've been googling around and I can't find anyone else with this issue.

I'm doing my second play through of DOS EE and something really bizarre happened. I went to Hiberheim and ran into Hilda and her crew, then went and did some other stuff in and out of Hiberheim. When I started getting really active Hiberheim again, I noticed that Hilda and her crew are gone. I didn't kill them. They just completely disappeared from the map. I went to the other two immaculate camps and they're empty too. They all just have corpses and the one just has tamed wolves. So basically all three immaculate camps are completely empty of immaculates.

How did this happen? I didn't kill any of them. I wanted to do the RPS games with them for XP and now I can't. Has anyone else had this problem before? Can I fix this without going back to an earlier load and losing all my progress?
