Good Tools Are A Working Sophont's Friend!

Seriously, have you looked at what is in the standard toolkits?

I dunno if this is the correct place for this, but don’t really care as Marc or someone will fix it if I am wrong and I can still see Hallis Mir on the Dashboard page so I need another post here to push him off that page.

Tools. Let’s talk about tools which begin with T which rhymes with P which stands for Pool, not the kind you swim in but the kind you bet on running the table, right here in River City!!!

I’m gonna go copy the best parts out of several very long CotI threads that I started more than a year ago and got a lot of response on, all about the very important topic of what belongs in all those toolboxes after 1980, which was apparently the year Marc Miller had in mind when writing those items for the LBBs back in 1977.

I chose as our reference point for those threads TL-12, whereas our ship was constructed and is being maintained at a TL-11 Starport, so either we need to decide what of this stuff should be allowed in TL-11 toolboxes, or Charlie will attempt to start a SIDE-QUEST by telling the ship’s engineers about all of the advanced tools they are missing out on – and you KNOW how Engineers get about their Tools! So if any of this stuff is too advanced for TL-11, we have to go hunt it down at someplace selling offworld high tech TOOLS!

I think for purposes of organization, I will go ahead and make Items for each kind of Toolkit, as that 1) seems to get more attention than just posting in OOC or GM Discussion or somewhere, plus if no one says anything about them, it sorta lends them an air of unearned authority; “Hey, look, it’s already in the Items and nobody said anything, right?”

[I only hope that my typing will be up to the task, as I am in a great deal of pain, have already taken all the meds that My Wife the Nurse will allow, and am resorting to that secret, ancient, painkiller known as Vino, in which Veritas is allegedly found. If anything I write is too much garbage, I trust that Marc will clean it up.]
