The miscellaneous quest called "Bring a Dragon Scale and a Dragon Bone to Esbern" is bugged too. After giving him the scale/bone, he will give you a potion called 'Esbern's Potion' that is supposed to give you a Dragon Infusion perk. Unfortunately, it doesn't and the quest doesn't disappear from your Journal either.
You can acquire the Dragon Infusion perk by typing this in your console "player.addperk 000E6DF0" without the quotes. Quest will still be bugged, but at least you'll gain the perk as meant to.

Ooooh, did not know that! Thanks for that info and guess I am having the bug too.

Hey did you try to create a potion before or after you were given the quest to kill a certain dragon?

NP! Glad it helped! I am thinking about also making another one for console commands as well as a couple of playstyle guides for a cleric.

Any work arounds for the All Dragonreach NPC's being agressive? Not a bounty issue... Read somewhere else you could fix it by unsheathing / sheathing your weapon, which doesn't work for me.

LOL, I assume that this is AFTER the Foresworn quest? What you are actually suppose to do is just let the Foresworn kill everyone and then your bounty will disappear. if you attack anyone prior, it will not happen as you incur new bounties. Try leaving the city and finding one of the city guards outside. Attack him and resheathe your weapon. Hopefully you can either buy or talk him out or pay the fine. If not, there are console commands that make them not aggro you though I am not sure whether or not that makes bounties go away.

For thoes of you still having trouble starting the Blood on the Ice quest, if you don't mind being guinea pigs, try entering the following instructions:

- Stand outside Windhelm and wait for close to 2 AM
- startquest ms11 (if that does not work as a parameter, try 0001F7A3 for the quest value)
- resetquest ms11
- This should start the quest for you
- Go into Windhelm and bee line to the cemetery

Let me know if this works!

Well, I tried everything above. I travelled in and out of windhelm a number of times. I went to Markarth and set my level to 14, then did one normal level up so that i was sure the game registered the level. So i was on level 15, a level that you were on when it worked for you. This quest worked the first time i did it on another character, but this time I had trouble getting the quest to start. Last time I hadn't done much except for the main quest and the college of winterhold. I hadn't done any of the civil war quests or the dark brotherhood, which both seem to interfere with this quests. On the player I am currently trying to activate this quest for I have completed the dark brotherhood and the house is available for purchase but I cannot buy it yet, because of some unresolved business or whatever he said. I sided with the stormcloaks and I haven't gotten to the part where I am trying to become thane. I haven't finished the civil war quests either. I was on level 40, and had rarely gone into windhelm before starting the civil war, as i started by doing the dark brotherhood and companions. So, back to where I was above where I had just levelled up to 15. I travelled to windhelm stables, and waited until 2:08am and then went through the main gate. nothing. So, I talked to viola and calixto. I tried entering the city again, nothing. I picked the lock and investigated the bloody chest. Nothing. So, after all this I fast travelled to markarth, and restarted the game. I fast travelled to windhelm stables, and waited until about 2am. I typed in 'startquest ms11' and then 'resetquest ms11' and nothing came up in the console to either of them, so i assume that it worked as it was meant to. I went inside windhelm, walked over to the graveyard... nothing. I checked and all the characters involved in the quest are still alive except for tova shatter-shield (the person you get the key off) because she committed suicide because i killed nilsine shatter-shield during the dark brotherhood quests. I'm not sure if this may be the problem or not but it looks like I'm just going to have to start a new save and do this quests first if I want to have access to the best house in the game. If you can think of anything else that may work it would be much obliged.

I know you opened the bloody chest, but did you ever go into the hidden back room? There is a journal and amulet there to pick up. Then you you read the flyer in the chest and the journal and talk to Viola. That can sometimes prompt her to tell you to talk to Jorlief.

On one of my playthroughs I didn't either. I just found the journal and talked to Viola who redirected me to Jorlief. I did not go to Jorlief, but to the court mage first to hear his story.

EDITED:

I totally messed that sentence up. Sorry for any confusions.
