    Default World Maps and Posters

    Per the subject, I'm seeking some advice.

    Fact: Spherical worlds presented on 2-D maps should generally be twice as wide as high, e.g., a 30" poster should be 15" high. Of course, they're not if Google Images searches on the Forgotten Realms, Pathfinder, Eberron, and other RPG settings are the reality - they're usually 30" wide by 24" high.

    Well, I'm in the midst of creating my first world map for the commercial game system I've been working on since 2007. Should I go with the flow of 30x24, or set the map up to be "realistic" at 2x width, 1x height? Your thoughts are genuinely appreciated.
