Cyphers in Torment: Tides of Numenera are located on this page. Cyphers are unique devices that can perform all manners of different actions, such as offensive area of effects, life drain, or summon beings. Once used, they are completely drained. They are also hazardous to handle, diminishing your effectiveness in combat and even carrying the potential to explode while you carry them. Increasing your Cypher limit can help prevent this.
