Description

When I did the quest Saintly Remains, I forgot to put back in place the first relic, so the next time I went to the Monastery, Urban attacked me for stealing and keeping the relic.
The problem is he was unstoppable, and invicible, and quickly won the fight. But instead of dying, my health was at 0, I could continue to play, Urban was again friendly with default dialogue.
I couldn't stop the bleeding, couldn't heal myself, and sleep didn't work either. I was stuck bleeding with a health at zero. Urban turned me into a bleeding walking cadaver!
I tried reloading and fought him again, no change. I tried reloading and putting the relic back in place, no change. I didn't however tried to reload before the start of Saintly Remains.
The only way to continue the game without an immortal Urban turning Henry into a zombie was for me to sneak at night and murder the poor bastard.

It should be notted that I took the relic (the bowl in the cave) before talking to Urban for the first time (like many other quest things I could take, like tonr papers I don't even know what they are for...). Also, after I gave im the bowl the first time, the quest was marked as completed (or after a while, I didn't pay attention as I completely forgot about the bowl) one thing sure is that I checked my log after combat or after killing him and the quest was in the completed quests like successful.

Anyway I was able to continue but I felt sorry for him and the zombie thing shouldn't happened!

History

I also had this occur, but I didn't realize it was bugged. I went on to heal myself up and play for another 40 or so hours of story and questing before I realized, I CANNOT DIE. Health will no longer fall below one (1). If reloading to a previous state 40 hours or so back is the only solution, that is very discouraging.

Okay... Urban vs Henry Episode II:
So I killed Urban to get past the bug, remember? Well now, an eternity after, I'm back to the Monastery to seek someone to help us construct a trebuchet (during "Siege" mainquest). I've been in the house in the courtyard of the monastery many times since I've killed poor Urban (contract from Sebastian vom Berg, stealing, etc...) with no problem whatsoever.

But today, guess who's back? Urban! Back from the dead and still angry.

So past the surprise, he of course attacked me. This time I was given the option to surrender, which works and the combat stopped. But if I dare to try to talk to him, he gives me the same rant about the stolen relic than before.
However I don't know if the "immortal vs zombie" bug would occur again, because this time the dialogue ends with an infinite loadscreen and Urban taunting me in the background. I tried twice, had to restart the game each time, so next time I guess I will wait for the night and slay Urban again (or his ghost or whatever, I don't even know anymore!)
It should be noted that I still have the relic (the bowl) on me, since I've killed him before and the quest was completed, I didn't bother putting it back in place, and when he appeared again today in front of vom Berg estate, the quest Saintly Remains is still in the completed quests category, so Urban is way off the quest actuality.

Next time I play the game from the beginning I will not forget this quest or even approach him, afraid I am now to be haunted forever by a vengeful Urban!
To be continued?... (guess that's one tough bug here!)

Cheers!

PS: okay the issue is worst than expected I believe. I think the fact that I killed Urban broke the mainquest. I'll make a bill regarding this issue in detail, but basically the second time I encountered him back alive, I killed him without talking to him. It appears Urban is needed to talk with regarding the Rocketeer quest. I didn't and everything was fine until the assassin stage. When I enter Konrad's office I'm stuck in an infinite loading after a cutscene where I "meet Konrad for the first time" (which is not the case in my gameplay)... Is it possible that killing Urban, especially before the Rocketeer quest might broke the all thing?
