Do Astropaths usually cover their empty eye sockets or leave them exposed ?

 

And what could be hidden in one ?

 

 

 

Depends very much on the Astropath, some sew there eyelids shut (and some of those paint false eyes on the lids), some wear bandages/bandanas over the sockets, again with decoration and others leave the raw sockets alone.

For those wishing to fill the gaps as it where, bionic sensors, head tubes or loose change is entirely appropriate

 

 

 

I'm thinking more along the lines of a concealed weapon. Probably eye lasers since the recoil from other weapons could be a problem.

 

Ah a true roleplayers answer, not "how do I maintain the impact of such a crippling change" but instead "How do I turn a physical disability into a weapon?"

Other people had already mentioned how an Astropath learns to compensate* well enough that it isn't a crippling change.

The Inquisitor skirmish game had a sample death cult assassin with an digital inferno pistol built into her cyber eye.
