No Crafting Thralls, Purge Meter Not Moving

Ever since the new patch came out I no longer see any of my crafting thralls, and the Purge bar is totally blank and not moving. I am currently playing the game on single player with no mods installled. Sometimes if I am playing for over 20 minutes the Purge bar will return. Not sure if this is all because I haven’t restarted my single player game within the last few test live patches, but it seemed fine a patch ago, and now I have the latest update. There was also a weird bug where my stamina bar would not replenish when I first loaded my game. Restarting the game seemed to have fixed that, but the bug was there either way.
