Foldable dodecahedron!

Perhaps I'm the only LaTeX junkie in the OSR. I understand that it's harder than MS Word or Pagemaker, but it's free, flexible, and beautiful. Just look at this foldable dodecahedron package! Surely we can put this to use.

  1. Cool, makes me want to come up with path-geomorphs for each side for a small planar dungeon.

  2. I know! I might knock-out a die with tables on each side.

  3. I take it you're familiar with Bucky Fuller's projection of a map for the earth on a D20 - sorry, icosahedron?

    Of course, a green issues site has monetized it.

  4. Yes, Fuller's stuff is wacky and cool. I wish his ideas and designs were more widespread today.

    I think that site you linked to just resells stuff from the Buckminster Fuller Institute

    From Wikipedia: Fuller attended Milton Academy in Massachusetts, and after that began studying at Harvard. He was expelled from Harvard twice: first for spending all his money partying with a vaudeville troupe, and then, after having been readmitted, for his "irresponsibility and lack of interest."
