The Phamysht are a species of pleasant, well-mannered, extremely cannibalistic space monsters. Exceptionally creative, and with an unrivaled eye for design, the Phamysht were once warmly welcomed as ward members of the Scryve Empire, though their eating habits were frowned upon. Now somewhat on the outs with their masters, few know what move the Phamysht have planned next.

Phamysht Consumer

Phamysht Consumer
The Phamysht Consumer is one of the most striking in the region, made up of three seemingly disconnected parts which, as in unison, form something unmistakably greater. A product of the Phamysht's famed midcentury modernist art movement, the vessel's clean lines also strike terror amongst the aliens throughout the stars for what they warn of: your imminent consumption by hungry monsters. Its primary fire, a high-heat laser, is capable of preparing its meals in situ, and is augmented by the Phamysht's feared Invitation Bell, a psychohalucinogenic compulsion felt by any affected aliens to jump overboard and float towards the Phamysht vessel.
