Qet was born from the viscera of a fallen god, their bones forming into the ground beneath your feet. Their tears becoming the oceans, rivers, and lakes. Their skin covered the land, giving rise to plant-life, and becoming home to the creatures born from the rest of the being's body.
You, too, were born from this god.
What is Qet?
Qet is a dark fantasy setting and TTRPG with heavy doses of cosmic and body horror, with inspiration in part from ancient Mesoamerican civilizations.

A world of flesh
Monsters, formed from the god's digestive system, are driven by ceaseless hunger. Humanity, formed from the god's beating heart, is driven by emotions. Animals born from the great being's nervous system serve to connect everything together.
The rest...the rest of the god's viscera have become great and powerful beings which are able to shake the world to its core— these are the aspects.
Be wary of them.
All around you, occultists work in the shadows to gain power from other eldritch beings, or exploit what little remains in the festering corpse below their feet. Eldritch beings often pursue their own, typically unfathomable, goals at our expense. They are not to be toyed with— their power is vast and unimaginable to our ilk.
Should you desire power, it's better to pursue alchemy. Just be careful to avoid mutation— which can all too often go wrong, leaving you crippled or dead rather than in possession of a body enhanced with new limbs and abilities.
For now, you wander the continent of Rqet— a warm land home to several of the greatest nations of Qet, and natural wonders as Tchaoxlik?
— a vast system of caverns where strange life has dwelled for untold years, largely unknown to those of us living on the surface.
I wish you the best of luck, traveller— you will need it.
