Know Someone

When you need someone in your current neighborhood with a particular skill, expertise, or knowledge, roll +Network. If you have a connection to the neighborhood, roll with advantage. On a hit, you know where to find them. On a 7-9, pick 1.

Trade Tongue

You speak a local dialect specific to trading or commerce. Pick two descriptors for the dialect. When you Observe Someone, you may freely ask, “Do they speak the Trade Tongue?” When interacting with someone who speaks the Trade Tongue, roll with advantage.

Descriptors

Black Market

When you Get Something that is especially difficult or illegal, after rolling, start a 6-segment Contraband clock. On 7-9, mark 1 segment. On 6-, mark 3 segments. From now on, you may mark the clock instead of marking Heat. When you fill the clock, someone will stop at nothing to recover the item.
