Fallen, I just went back to the 740 club with the Kidd and the story advanced. I'm pretty sure that after hiring the Kidd (both times) I never stepped outside the club. I used the phone and cabbed it to beacon hill. That may have caused the dialog to never occur.
lucian - ahhhhh, that makes sense. So you never walked outside of the club. Right, there is a story event waiting for you there, but if you cab away you'd miss it.
Thanks for figuring out why people keep getting stuck here! That's so helpful. I will work on resolving this for the next release! #CK-2240
Thanks so much, and enjoy the rest of the Eastwind Niner.
Glad I could help. I've played through many times but this was the first time the story never advanced. I suggest not having a phone at the 740 club (North End has a total of 5 already) so we are forced outside of the club if we want to cab it.
