Rqet

I have been away for far too long, and have begun to retread my home continent in my dreams. Past the great lake Chluetichlon, to the red sands of Cipou Canyon in the west, back to the east to wander the proud peaks of Nipinoul— so near to the stars. Oh, how I wish to return one day!
— A Rektouzk trader
  The continent of Rqet is home to a variety of peoples, nations, and natural landmarks. Most notably among these are the nation of Rektouzk— one of the most powerful nations in the known world, Nipinoul: The Great Spine which contains the world's highest peak, Tchaoxlik— the great cavern, and Ytoulch Chotol— Qet's largest rainforest.  

Beneath the Sun

Rqet is home to a variety of geographical features, including a number of differing climates. In the west, the land is tinted in brilliant reds, pinks, and oranges.

Native commodities

Beyond the variety of humans present within Rqet, the continent is also home to a great number of unique flora, fauna, and minerals   Two particularly popular items demanded throughout the world are both found within Rektouzk land, the yoult tree and the glittering couleuz crystal.   Tchaoxlik especially is home to forms of life seen nowhere else, such as the sweet fettep, and ferocious llibttell.

Great deserts stretch as far as the eye can see, broken by the Tchoul Salt Flats, and of course— the life-giving Cipou River. This vast, dry area is nearly cut off from the rest of the continent by the Tchtnox Mountains, past which lies much more arable land. North of these lies a once fertile basin, home to the now cursed Rotomul forest, which grows endlessly— requiring an annual controlled burning of the screaming lumber.   The land here bears the scars of these repeated burns, and is often charred black as a result. Inadvertently, this has led to more fertile farmland for the people who live here. North of this basin lies the Xhloui River, the marshes at its mouth, and the Youti islands to the northwest. West of the basin lies the Rollk Desert, a desolate landscape of broken stone, lying in the shadow of Nipinoul: The Great Spine, a precipitous mountain range.   East of these mountains, the great rainforest Ytoulch Chotol grows wild, beside the Dohe Reef directly west. Along the south of the continent lies tropical forests, and the great, bottomless lake— Chluetichlon. And beneath it all lies the vast caverns of Tchaoxlik.  
 

Climate

All of Rqet is constantly assailed by the sun's rage, while areas such as the deserts in the west may be significantly hotter— annual temperatures within the continent average at 94°F. Rainfall is more common in the north and south, as are terrible hurricanes each hotyixok. During hotchalit, the deserts in the west are deadly— one can boil alive should they venture too far from the canyon's shadow. Within the basin and in certain areas in the west, terrible windstorms form during hotyezil.  
Sweat forms along my brow once more, but I do not wipe it away this time. I welcome it. It tells me that I am still alive, and provides welcome relief.

There are, at current, eleven different nations that claim territory within the continent. In the west, Zilopnou dominates the Cipou Canyon, while Ponouli along the northern peninsula launches constant invasions to reclaim what was once theirs.   At the southern edge of the great deserts, lies the cursed island city of Shoal'Ghnu. Past the Tchtnox Mountains lies Romtol, tensely watching their northern neighbors across the Xhloui River— Louh for their inevitable attack. Isolated from this conflict by the Youti islands west of the river's mouth, lies Noktyoul.

Visitors

Several powerful beings reside within Rqet, including aspects of Qetlon.   This includes the Ahndel Veha— Qetlon's ears, Auroul— Qetlon's womb, and recently, Ytzkla— Qetlon's mouth.   Unrelated to Qetlon, there is also Chluetichlon, the ancient ones in Noktyoul, Ytnolshola, the Lost Nation of Ur'agthl, and more...
  Back east, within the watchful peaks of Nipinoul, reside the Gokh Tribes. These very same mountains cut off the musical nation of Hanviehl from contacting their neighbors until recent times. At the southern edge of the continent lies the diminutive Chlotoun. In the vast dark of Tchaoxlik, the nation of Tteunor is at war with Pottott— which was theirs until a recent schism. And finally, controlling the southeastern lands of Rqet, and a significant portion of Tchaoxlik, lies the great mercantile nation of Rektouzk.
