Numenera: Dust Runners

When traveling the Beyond, one must be ever vigilant against harm. The Dust Runners are merely one of those harms. The raiders travel in a titanic land barge that barrels through the region. When they find a target, the barge creates a massive dust storm through a mysterious artifact. The runners then swarm on the target, like locusts, reducing their target to nothing.

Environment: The Beyond
Health: 12
Damage Inflicted: 3
