Hi all, stuck on a quest for the claws, Cleric Research. I previously, way before learning about the claws, pickpocketed the two archivists who carry the documents needed for the quest (which they did not carry at the time), so I resorted to good old fashion murder, but it turns out they are essential characters (stunnable, not lootable). Any ideas on a work around to get the papers from them? (I'm not above cheating, given the situation)

Speaking to them only gets me yelled at, and adding the "you only steal twice" skill does not allow a second separate pickpocket attempt.
