Warriors and the numenera

When it comes to the numenera, most warriors are interested in weapons, armor, or devices that aid them in combat. The ancient civilisation of the ruins of old produced all sorts of incredibly durable substances, many of which can be made into armor that is lighter and more protective than steel. Sometimes, warriors can scavenge a suit of armor composed of these advanced materials, but more often they find the materials and then ask a crafter or smith to make the armor. Of course, the problem is that a substance that is difficult to damage is also hard to work. As varied as armoring materials might be, numenera weaponry is infinitely more so. These items include melee weapons that shock, stun, or burn whatever they touch; and ranged weapons that blast projectiles with incredible power or bursts of strange energies. There are also bombs, damaging energy fields, poisonous gases, and far stranger weaponry, but most warriors find that such complex objects are better off in the hands of a tinkerer. Maneuverability is just as important as attack or defense, however, so an item that allows a warrior to move quickly is a great prize. As for cyphers, warriors prefer physically enhancing or restorative objects, such as injections of chemicals that improve reaction time or pills that heal wounds and restore fatigued muscle tissue. They use the nickname “boost” for any cypher that enhances their strength, stamina, reflexes, or other physical aspects, while one that repairs damage or alleviates fatigue is called a “treat.”
