Pamspawn (5e Race)
From D&D Wiki
The fight had seemed hopeless after a mere few minutes of battle. They had thought that the ugly human would be an easy mark as they had been walking alone down the dusty road. Everything had gone wrong, however, once they demanded all of the gold they had on them. The figure had spoken two words and the entire gang fell limp to the ground. When one managed to get up and drive a knife where the figure’s heart should have been, it merely twisted its head to an unnatural angle, a vicious grin splitting its pockmarked face.

Twisted Pillars of Strength

Pamspawn are tall, and might have been beautiful had their visages not been horrifically scarred. All Pamspawn emerge into the world from tins of coffee with their bodies already mangled to the point that most other races would not survive. Though they seem to be humans on the surface, many have found that their limbs retain unnatural strength. Those that speak to the abominations find their voices deep and scratchy with an odd, other-worldly accent.
The Final Pam's Children
As creations of the ultimate being, The Final Pam, Pamspawn reflect their creator’s sardonic wit and twisted sense of humor. They seem to find amusement in the desecration of corpses to resemble their own meaty skin, and laugh in the face of other inhuman abominations. Some of the more evil individuals with access to resurrection magic have been known to mutilate victims until death, resurrect them, and continue the torture. Pamspawn find beauty in carnage, but also respect more traditional aesthetics. They have an affinity for the garb worn by their progenitor: A feathered red dress, sunglasses, and big hair.
Transient Seekers of the Rift
Most Pamspawn are solitary creatures, searching alone for the methods of returning The Final Pam into the world and free her from her imprisonment in the infinite ocean that underlies the multiverse. That journey is often opposed by the allies of the deity Todd Howard, the god charged with stabilizing glitched realities, who imprisoned The Final Pam as a last ditch effort to contain her chaotic spread of nonsense. Through Todd Howard's interference, many Pamspawn are formed in the world with their powers greatly stunted, and so they must find a group of adventurers to join and aid until such a time as their powers resurface and their goals are met.
Pamspawn always have names that incorporate elements of their sire or their family. They also bear titles that reference their goals or relationships to The Final Pam and her aliases.
