How do you imagine the tools of science?
Some kind of steampunk techy weapon?
A med kit of surgical tools?
A box of syringes and poisons?
General knowledge of xenobiology which lets you know how best to hurt various monsters?
Something else?

A good mental image of what any given piece of equipment is greatly aids my enjoyment, what do y'all think?

Any or all is my thought. I figured it can vary from person to person.

Just no anal probes. devil

I like to imagine there is a sonic screwdriver involved.

Tools of Science first showed up in A Touch of Evil, letting you use your Cunning stat to Fight with (instead of Fight stat). I'm pretty sure it's in Dark Gothic too. Unfortunately, I'm too lazy right now to go pull it out and take a picture. Sorry.

Edit: Actually you can see the card at the bottom of this image. Looks like mortar/pestle, glass jar of sand, a skull, metal tongs and... a corkscrew?

Yeah, and since Touch of Evil was heavily inspired by the Sleepy Hollow movie, starring Johnny Depp, you can look at images from that movie for some ideas as well:

I didn't see his corkscrew. Maybe Johnny is just bad at Sciencing.
