The Bean Counter

The Bean Counter is a very well known shop containing all varieties of numenera, from odd bits and baubles, to truly amazing pieces of cobbled, restored, and in a rare case, preserved technology. It’s tall, looming shelves, odd tables, and misshapen synth bins brim with more numenera than most nanos could hope to master in five lifetimes.

Here is a non-exhaustive list of the devices the Bean Counter’s stores contain:

These numbers reference the random cypher/artifact/oddities tables in Sir Arthour’s Guide to the Numenera. In many cases these are an indirect reference to the Numenera Core Book.

Hint: If something is not listed but you know such items exist and you are interested in one, it is possible the Bean Counter has it and you missed it among the rest as you perused its stock, or it is hiding in the back…
