Numenera

Numenera

Collective term for any piece of technology leftover from the old pre-apocalyptic society. The word “numen” is a Latin root word meaning a “pervading divine presence” and “era” refers to the period in which the ruins of old setting takes place. With a nod towards Clarke’s third law, “any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic”, the setting treats technology with much the same approach as magic in a fantasy setting. The native technology level is roughly medieval.

Numenera are usually divided into three categories: artifacts, cyphers and oddities.
