So I have been stuck on the “After Cael” part of the quest FOREVER. I tried using the Skyrim creation kit method, using the cheat sheet, trying to debug him using the Riverwood method and nothing would advance me forward. I’d actually already played through this mod once so I knew this had to be a bug. Anyways, I finally figured out a solution after much trial and error.
Open up the Skyrim Console commands by pressing “`” unless you use a different key.
Then type this… setstage sravmeetingcaeldibella 60
Then all I did was fast travel to Riverwood, talked to him and bam! Fixed! 😀
I hope this works for everyone else who was struggling like me.
