Seeing as parapsy abilities are rooted in spiritual trauma, it could lead that the presence of EMS and its symptoms could aggravate the situation. The people in the towers are cleaner, more insulated, and more complacent, while the people in the sprawl and undercity are being irradiated as well oppressed. That works nicely. Go to Comment
There are some seriously good plot hooks here, especially for midrange or higher level PCs. While a bit tedious in places, overall good. I would like to see a bit of fluff bring some of these scenes to life. Go to Comment
There are some interesting ideas here, some that need to be fleshed out. I do apologize about taking so long to respond. This is something that could feasibly fit into the Cosmic Era (albeit in a controlled environment, like a nanobot lab, with the patient resting in a medical pod, rather than a shoot in the arm and rock on with it)
I liked the Cure Itch Nanos, especially in the context of hacking them into 'Cause Itch' nanobots, so that dozens or hundreds of ceremonial soldiers could be reduced to rolling around like dogs halfway through a formal military parade for a dictator, sending the tin pot tyrant into a rage, and kicking off the rebellion.
I think several others missed their potential, because unless the PCs have a debilitating blood or heart disorder, or are paraplegic the blood and nerve nanos are useless. You can swing them around and have the blood nanobots make the blood more efficient, giving them more athletic stamina, or having enhanced clotting abilities keeping even lethal wounds from killing them.

The creation of intelligent magical weapons is not an exact science and there are occasional failures, as such think of causing a little more stress to your players by "rewarding" them with an insane magical weapon
Agrophobic, refuses to come out of the scabbard without a strength check to draw it.
Haemaphobic: afraid of blood, fight at a penalty against any blooded creatures but really good against undead, elementals etc
Schizophrenic, not just one mind in your sword, lets have half a dozen minds in there, all different and bound to cause confusion
