Ran across Dymaxion maps on Wikipedia today, and realized that it's a way to look at the world from a different angle than we usually do. In case you didn't know, the world of Greyhawk was based on North America turned upside down, with the city of Greyhawk in the same location as Chicago!
The beauty of Dymaxion maps is that they can be unfolded in any way you want, and there is no right or wrong way. Looking at the north pole on the map above, I see a new fantasy world just waiting to be filled in. A little artistic license to change the more noticeable bits (Florida, I'm looking at you.) and you have a world map that's familiar yet strange at the same time. You could even use the map above as a template for your own Dymaxion map of your campaign world!
