A large terrestrial world close to its star. Generally dead worlds, they manage to cling to an atmosphere without going through the massive greenhouse process of Cytherean worlds. They differ from Phosphorian worlds due to their proximity to the sun, and may be tidally locked. Unlike Phosphorian and Cytherian, it is the stellar heat and not the atmosphere which make them inhospitable hell holes.

Tend to have a thin to moderate atmosphere, often of carbon dioxide or inert gases. Some worlds have a hydrogen/nitrogen atmosphere, which may amazingly harbour some basic life of it is dense enough.

Some such worlds have opaque cloud layers, which reflect a lot of the heat, but they are still inhospitable.
