A take on the cosmic horror genre, 4E's Star Spawn (which I do hope to cover later on if/when I ever do 4E) are basically beamed down to our plane when the stars align just right, sending a small mote of power of the Elder Being that we perceive as 'stars' from their plane into ours, and they are such interestingly described reality warpers, being manifestations of these stars in a way that the material plane can handle.
