OK, so after a year of not playing KCD, I decided to start a new playthough on a cleanly installed GOG game, without mods. I wanted to mod it again, but I cant remember everything I installed. I know that mods can taint the save files and cause bugs. So I figured it’s better to do without.
Anyway, while I was in Skalitz I got some lockpicks from Fritz. Then I played all the way through to the Homecoming quest, and completed it. After waking up in Peshek’s house, I find that everything I had from before is still there…except my 4 lockpicks. Are they supposed to be “confiscated” by the game after this quest? I know I can get more from Votava in Talmberg, so it’s not an issue. I also find it weird that my lockpicks are gone while my dagger is still present.
