Nano is one of the three base 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 supernatural agencies.

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.
