Nano is one of the three character types in Numenera that can be chosen during character creation.
Nanos are sometimes called mages, wizards, sorcerers, or witches by the people
of the Ninth World. Nanosorcerer is also a common term, with their abilities
referred to as nano-sorcery. Some claim to be the representatives of gods or other
Whatever they’re called, nanos master the mysteries of the past to such a degree
that they seem to perform miracles. They tap into the numenera to alter reality or
learn things that they couldn’t otherwise know.
The term “nano” is derived from the nanotechnology that is omnipresent
throughout the Ninth World. Sometimes people call these invisible, numinous
particles that infuse the landscape nano-spirits.
