The quest to kidnap Mabel from the Governor's Mansion in Port Regal appears to be bugged. I have completed the instance quest "A Felon's Employment" three times, and upon exiting the sewers the story quest, "With Catlike Thread" repeatedly tells me to abscond with Mabel.
You'll want to contact firstname.lastname@example.org if this problem persists. When you contact them, please provide as much detail as possible:
1. Confirm username (which account are you playing) 2. What area were you trying to access when this happened? 3. What time (approximately) was it? 4. Please attach game logs for further review (see below for more instructions). 5. Are you still having this trouble? If not, what occurred?
Instructions for sending game logs: Use your email service to add an attachment. Drill down to the Pirate101 Folder then to the Bin Folder and the Log Folder then select "Captain_XXX.Log" (the highest numbered one or the most recently dated). Then just hit send!
If this is too large for your email server to attach or send, then open the game folder, go to the the bin folder again and locate the Captain.log. Right click on the log file and select Save as Zip (or similar wording - will vary depending on your specific operating system). Then, go back to your email and attach the newly zipped Captain.log.zip file.
When you get the "abscond with Mabel" portion of the quest, you are supposed to fight the Red Coats at the bottom of the Stairs. If you avoid this fight, then you don't complete the goal of abscond with Mabel and don't really complete A Felon's Employment. Do you actually get the message that you completed A Felon's Employment when you exit the Sewers?
