FS#21691 - I can't start the quest "A New Source of Stalhrim" by talking to Deor

I return to the Skaal Village after completing “The Fate of the Skaal” and I am unable to continue as the Woodcutter only talks about general things and the blacksmith never gets kidnapped. I have tried multiple things to fix it but am unable to access the final tomb to get my last shout. I would have to go back a long way with a save to retry and hope it would not happen again. I have completed all the required talks and done all the side tasks on the entire island.

Could you please provide a list of the mods you use in the order that they're sorted?

I am only running the "Unofficial patch".. downloaded it hoping it would fix the fixed other stuff but not this quest.

Fanari and Deor are both required for A New Source of Stalhrim (DLC2SV02) but they were not properly protected from being killed by the player prior to the quest starting. If dead, and the quest has not started yet, they will both be resurrected. (Bug #12855)

This is the only thing I can find regarding that quest that the patch has fixed, but you mentioned that they were alive. Not exactly sure why the quest won't progress in your case other than the fact that it sounds like you didn't start the game with the patch installed which may or may not make any difference.

This issue was already fixed. Make sure your patch is properly activated as this quest does not fail to start when tested.
