Jack in Torment: Tides of Numenera are intrepid explorers and adventurers. If you like to explore and interact with the Numenera world or peoples live in it, this is your best choice. The name Jack came from Jack of all trades—although the word also hearkens back to fables involving a wily, resourceful hero who always seems to be named Jack. Used as a verb, “to jack” means to steal, to deceive, or to get out of a tight scrape through ingenuity or luck.
Jacks don’t use one skill or tactic exclusively; they use whatever weapons, armor, esoteries, or anything else that might help them. They are hunters (particularly treasure hunters), con artists, skalds, rogues, scouts, and experts in a variety of fields. Speed is necessary for all Jacks.
