Commissioning an Item
You can ‘commission’ an item from the Black Market at a 5% mark up in price and a 20% down payment. Next time you visit the settlement the item is in on a 5+, 6+ if it’s a objective room treasure. You do not need to find the Black Market as they’ll find you. Must make full payment at this time or loose access to the item and your down payment.
Any time you have any interaction with ‘Settlement Officials’, on a 4+ you have been ‘Caught’ with a stolen item in your possession – see Caught Chart.
