Gloves of the Forgotten Gardener is a piece of equipment in Torment: Tides of Numenera.

Description[edit | edit source]

These rubbery tubes look like they could be worn as awkward two-fingered gloves. The mottled dun fabric is stiff and resists gentle pressure, like leather soaked and dried too many times. They are not designed for human hands, and the cloth constricts uncomfortably on your hands. The gloves undergo a startling change when they touch soil. The cloth instantly flows and ripples with interweaving patterns of color, and the surface erupts with complex textures: stippled, dimpled, or occasionally sculpted into stark three-dimensional arrangements. When withdrawn from contact with the soil, the gloves retain their new pattern for a few minutes before returning to their original dull, smooth form. Upon touching the same sample again, they promptly assume the same configuration as before, but in contact with a different sample, they shift into a new and unique shape and set of vivid patterns. You do not know what the patterns could mean.
