Firstly- my Smugglers Crew have the Smugglers Rigging upgrade which means that two items can be carried without being noticeable. Does this mean they can carry 5 Load and still look like they only have 3 Load (ie they choose “Light Load” but actually have 5 Load worth of items?) or that they still only have 3 Load for “Light” but two of them can’t easily be found.
Secondly – a matter of taste I suspect but I’d value opinions. The next Score I have in mind for my players is a request to smuggle some firearms to some oppressed union workers in Coalridge. This is likely to involve
a) Finding a source for the items (whether by theft, bribery, negotiation etc)
b) Actually smuggling the weapons in.
Would this be one Score (the smuggling) or two (the acquisition, then the smuggling)?
I can see it working either way and the acquisition could be interesting enough not to gloss over it, but it would feel odd to have Downtime after that part.

I’m about to start a game involving a crew of Smugglers and I seem to have a mental block about scores using “Transport” as the point of engagement. I know that not everything a Smuggler crew does will actually involve scores based on moving things around, but this does seem likely to come up.
The missing detail is “route” – but so far whenever I imagine how things may go the Score would seem to start somewhere on that route with some other type of encounter (an infiltration, a confrontation, a deception etc).
What am I missing, and can anyone give me some examples of how they would run Transport scores?

Quick cry for help from you guys – I’ve set up a Blades game on Roll20 using the inbuilt and rather splendid character sheets. Until tonight all worked wonderfully – now whenever anyone tries to roll dice (either by clicking on the appropriate trait in the character sheet as usual or entering a dice command in chat etc) all we get is “Rolling…” then an error message that the roll failed verification, and a backfilled chatbox as though loads of rolls have been made none of them relating to what’s happened.
I’ve logged into other non Blades games and all is working fine in there.
