At various places in the books it is mentioned that you gain proficiency in:
- a type of tool (eg. Skilled feat; p.170 PHB) and
- a type of artisan's tool (eg. Folk Hero background; p.131 PHB)
Which tools proficiencies fall under the definition of "a tool", for the purposes of proficiency, when no further distinction is made?
I have always assumed these were the tools on p.154 of the PHB that have no category such as Thieves Tools, Herbalism Kit, Vehicles etc. but at the same time have always wondered if that is actually correct...
