non-Euclidean geography

One problem with non-Euclidean geography, or even non-Euclidean architecture, is that it imposes no natural constraints.  So it has be curbed by the logic of the story. . . .

If it has one.

I'm vaguely thinking of giving a Twelve Dancing Princess sort of ballroom that doesn't fit.  That would constrain it.  And would make sense in the story.  Although the dance itself would not make much sense as a curse in this context.  Would have to rework it there.  But at least there would be a constraint.

As long as I decide how much in way of woods you have to go through to get there.
