I have the same problem. I haven't used the shout on the Wind Stone yet. I've tried following close to Frea the whole way, walking on my own, and sprinting. I've reloaded from before the black book, after the black book, and after leaving the temple.
At first, I just went on with the game, doing random side quests and dungeons. I went up 4 levels and have done every site on the island, and finally, realizing we probably aren't going to get a patch to fix this bug, went back to the old saves, losing all my progress, and spent a couple of hours trying to get the quest to progress. No luck. I'm kind of pissed, to put it mildly.
I'll try to reload...but it pisses me off 'cause I've almost finished everything in Solstheim! I visited all dungeons (I also defeated Karstaag) and I made 6-7 level upgrade!
The thing is that I've tried to complete the main quests (without having them activated), but I'm now stucked 'cause I have to enter Nchardak and to do it I need Neloth to reach me with the dwemer activating key (or something like that)...
I used the Black Book Waking Dreams it brought me to the proper place and Miraak just stands there. He doesn't turn around. He doesn't speak. The dragon is flying around not landing like it should. I use the enableplayercontrols command to use the black book again and I get teleported back to the temple as normal. Frea talks to me as normal and then just walks off and never responds to me talking to her. Fate of the Skaal never activates...Yet and old save works fine. What do I do?
im on the ps3 and ive been playing dragonborn for a long time. i never got the miraak quest. and when i tracked down storn crag strider in the skaal village. he's sitting crosslegged near this energy with two people in front of him and wont let me talk to him. how do i fix this?

(Note that this forum is more than six months old).
I'm afraid that you may need to reload to an old save as this is a bug.
ive figured out why i couldnt talk to storn or find frea. im 223 something hours into playing skyrim. ive only done the first 4 main quests. i finally travelled to high hrothgar. i did the find the horn of jurgen windcaller. i went to the place where i was told to go from a mysterious note. two cultists showed up. this started the dragonborn quest. and i travelled to raven rock and talked to someone about miraak. and this sent me to the temple of miraak where i found frea and talked to her. until this. she wasnt here. this is how to fix it
Try going to Shamans hut at night and see if storn is found their that is what I read for the quest if you do find him (indeed I couldn't) talk to him and hopefully he will talk to you about the bend will shout and you'll get the quest
This personally is another guess but, you can try and go to high hrothgar and keep going to places to get shouts and you might find all the rest of bend will go from their and use the bend will shout on all the rest of the stones
Just had this problem an hour ago on ps4. Ended up power attacking storn while he is sitting on the ground, making him kneel. (SAve before hand just in case) When attacked by other villagers, sheathe weapons and they will return to normal. Frea then walks over and starts the proper dualogue with Storn for the quest. This may not be a fix but it worked for me so I hope it works for others with the same problem.
Same problem. *And reloading a save does nothing*. I suspect it does nothing for a lot of people. I do wish, given the number of people who can find no way to solve this, that the bug list would include that for some people the problem is permanent. This if only to raise awareness of it somewhat.
Unfortunately (for increasing numbers of people since the Legendary Edition), the Solstheim DLC is broken.*
I'm now stuck in a situation where no matter where I am physically located in the game, more often than not, Miraak will take the souls of the dragons that my character kills. So it's actually broken the rest of the game too. This needs a patch.
I'm playing the Special Edition for PS4 and had the same issue so I went and destroyed the other 4(?) stones and killed their respective creatures and when I went to talk to Storn the quest concluded and everything proceeded as it was supposed to.
Hope this helps.
(note: i wasnt done with the main story for the game and i finished it in between the two times i tried talking to Storn)
I know this is an old thread, but for anyone stumbling upon it while Googling (because the problem was never patched), I've got my personal solution. For me, the problem was that I did not follow Frea directly out of the Temple of Miraak, but instead opened the black book again to gain all the items there. You should follow Frea so she will tell her story on the way to Skaal Village. Then, when you arrive, she will talk to her father and after that the quest will continue so you can also talk to her father, Storn.
Just for some extra information, I already completed the Dragonborn quest, so that was no solution for me.

I did that to then I saved the wind stone now I can talk to him but he wont talk to me about it and i'm not going to reload save becaose I leveled about 30 levels since then and am now a master conjurer so I screwed up any suggestions?
i just got the special addition for my birthday last month for xbox one and ive gotten alot of progress without doing the main quest line by starting with the add-ons but i can't start the fate of the skaal quest and it really pisses me off because i don't want to go back and level up again and i really need help!!!!!
I'm just saying, on my character I killed the other 2 people at the stones and I dont have a save to go back to for this that i want to go to. I've tried most other things, but the guy just wont talk.can someone please help?
Okay I know this is so so so late. I had the exact same problem and I was getting so pissed but all I did was cleanse the Stone over by the village with the bend will shout and it fixed it. Hope this helps!!
This is super old but if anyone runs into this problem on Xbox, you can go into the editor test cell provided by the Hearthfire Buiding Materials mod, it contains all dragon born loot, in the chest called Dragonborn books Epistulary Acumen. Reading that in Solstheim will trigger the next part of the quest!
