Charmpaste is a Cypher in Torment: Tides of Numenera.
Description[edit | edit source]
A small tube of reddish, aqueous paste. It is warm to the touch and gives off a sweet, balmy perfume. When applied to the teeth, it temporarily stimulates facial muscles. From a distance, this twitch can easily be mistaken for a disarming and somewhat trustworthy grin. The perfume is pleasant from a comfortable distance, and acts as a very mild intoxicant. It causes the user to seem more approachable and honest than they normally would. Charmpaste eventually evaporates, leaving behind a pink, chalky residue. Its effects are limited and tend not to last not much longer than a first impression.
