I like her - a simple straightforward NPC that can easily be used. I think Cersei is very close to this one :)

Great - but I think it could go a little further to work properly.

In addition to the musculature of the face, changes would need to be made to the underlying bones. Bone would need to be removed in multiple places to allow for ratio changes between the various facial feature to allow for expansion or compression. In these joints would be placed either implanted servos (bad for lots of reasons) or tissue that could be caused to swell or contract as needed. This would allow for dramatic changes in appearance but would have the side effect of reducing the structural integrity of the face.

Another side effect of this is the facedancer loses their original face. Their resting face would be an odd one - contracted with with features a bit too close to be natural. So, they would always normally be acting.

This is interesting, and would best be combined with IR blocking smoke as well.

Countermeasures could include the simple expedients of fans, or mini-drones with trailing ariels.

A good rundown on these.

Rippers seem a lot less useful to me after seeing these exist -

Technobabblish nanofiber to make it even more effective. But then we replace the teeth on the saw with Hyperblades .. :)

This does a great job of conjuring up madness. As a piece, I guess it lacks a final punch/twist that would put it over the top.

I'm very, very impressed with this. Excellent voice. I didn't mean to read it all in one sitting, but I did. I got a strong Watchman vibe from this as well, if not as dark.

Top marks! You must run a damn good campaign.

This is one way to make the Oculas a lot more practical. Thinner, lighter, more durable. Really its a logical progression.

As for vulnerability to digital hacking, it would not be hard to work in analog displays as well as non-digital fiber optic channels.

You could also have smart materials which can shift between opaque and clear, which could switch between full VR (full opacity with display), none (full transparency) or augmented reality (full transparency + display).

The Silent Mage

       By: Wulfhere

A powerful wizard that the PCs encounter is completely silent. He does not speak and cannot be heard as he moves. Even his spells are silent, but his magic is just as potent.

He has a tendency to summon invisible chairs, place foes in invisible boxes of force, and other "mime tricks".
