Planemos: Cosmic Nomads

Throughout the Universe, cosmic worlds float untethered to the gravity of any host star. Often times these stars, called planemos, are similar to brown dwarf stars, but often are the size of Jupiter, or smaller. They bear much more resemblance to planets than any type of stars. They are often much smaller and less reactive than their counterparts the brown dwarfs.

These eerie worlds float through space without the light of a star to shed light on the surface.
