It appears the flags that reference you committing violations in the monastery are also referencing universal flags that occurred prior to joining the monastery.
As an example, I start the quest line, receive my robes and talk to Antonius, reject his tour. I have a free day, as it is my first day cloistered, so I use it to chat with monks and novices. Then either Circator John or Circator Stibor approach me and engage in mandatory dialogue that asks if we are in a Tavern and why am I fighting. I have hit absolutely no one and engaged in zero violence inside the monastery.
I am mandated to their equivalent of jail if I don’t want to instantly fail the quest(s).
I have reloaded multiple times and the behavior is the same. Sometimes it will occur specifically in the garden area, other times it will occur anywhere. Perhaps just the first day is bugged and then it will improve. I need to test more. Also, I do not have any blood or bruises on me as I went to the bathhouse prior to agreeing to take on the robes.
One element I want to try is to kill (or perhaps knock out) both John and Stibor and place them in the very jail they are so eager to take me to. Will this impact the questline at all if both NPCs are dead? I know John was up for the Abbot position.
let me know if you recommend some way to fix this questline for myself, because it is currently unplayable.
