Teling is a Oddity of equipment in Torment: Tides of Numenera.

Description[edit | edit source]

This odd pair of gloves, made out of a thick brown leather-like material, feels comfortable and springy. Half-icosahedral metallic studs are mounted on the knuckles. Very shiny and perfectly smooth, they appear to be made out of chromium and feel lukewarm to the touch under any conditions. When worn, the gloves quickly become a burden. The studs begin to make a faint buzzing sound. The longer the gloves are worn, the louder the buzz. After a few minutes, a pronounced fatigue sets in. The fatigue progresses until the wearer feels the same sort of numb sensation in their digits that one would have after wood carving or playing a string instrument for hours. They are impossible to wear comfortably after this point. Tucked into one of gloves when you found them is a piece of paper. On it is a crude picture of the gloves, with various glyphs pointing to specific parts of the apparel. While fascinating, the glyphs do not indicate the gloves' purpose.
