Root Spike is a Cypher in Torment: Tides of Numenera.
Description[edit | edit source]
This wooden stake has a crudely fashioned point and roots dangling from its head. When the proper command is given and the stake is thrown, it explodes on impact into a thick mass of tangled roots that entangle anyone slow or unlucky enough to be caught within. Its easy concealment, unassuming looks, and ability to stop a pursuer dead in their tracks has made this item popular among rogues and ne'er-do-wells.
