This is pretty cool, but from a hard SF perspective, evaporating a non-trivial region of existence is going to release immensely more energy then a little bit of hawking radiation.

Maybe if the collapsed matter/energy is shunted somewhere else it would help in the whole conservation of energy thing. Maybe these weapons create nasty explosions in another dimension. Might attract the wrong kind of attention...

The second effect of obliterating a fixed radius of reality if in an atmosphere would be a massive shock wave as the vacuum collapses. This would resemble an explosion whose energy would depend on the volume of the destruction.

For fun I threw some numbers at it. A 1 km radius sphere has a volume of 5.24×10^8 m3. A vacuum has VERY roughly 2kJ of energy per m3. So, ~ 1x10^9 kj - which is roughly .2kilotons. A good boom.

A nice take on this.

The biggest problem I have with visualization is the size of these units - are they still roughly man-sized plus 4' ?

Very cool, though I am wondering at the 'rail' part of the name. Go to Comment

Any idea why they call them that? I honestly never heard of this term. I've learned something new :)

Awesome stuff! If you link your source code, I'll push this to a 5!

So now I have another side project to put on my ever growing heap of Stuff I'd Like To Do If I Only Had The Time list :)

Update: A simple item. Somewhat similar to the Alchemy Jug, but I think more fun. Go to Comment

Did you read the related submission Cheka? This is intentionally a very terse submission.

That said, I would probably use the more verbose form with each sentence followed by a bit of expansion.

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.
