How does an AB Weird Science recreate their Trapping items if they are lost or destroyed?
P.148 says they must always use their item ... A weird scientist’s Trappings (see page 150) must always include the item they’re associated with.
Then the example on p.149 in Jury Rigging shows them being able to use a power, albeit at the -2, after the item is lost ... Gabe is captured by evil aliens and all his equipment is taken. He’s placed in a holding cell and decides he’ll use the overhead lights and whatever the aliens use for electricity to create a makeshift blast.
But how does Gabe ever recreate his item?
