Online Dungeon Master is usually a one-man operation (that’s me), but I welcome guest posts and contributions. Today, I’m pleased to share some maps and MapTool files created by one of my readers, Josh Cayer. These maps have also been added to my Map Library.
The MapTool file can be downloaded here. Josh explains:
It is a combo puzzle/encounter….I have left the solution in place. Just remove the Orbs from the map.Upon entry, the illusionary wizard at the bottom of the map appears and tells the players they must place 8 orbs on the map. The orbs cannot “see” each other horizontally or vertically.Like I said, there are no orbs on the map at the start. A new one can be obtained from any of the three bowls. Only one orb can be in play at a time. Once an orb is placed, it grows to fill the square, making it impassable.Once an orb is placed, moving next to it results in a small amount of lightening damage.A misplaced orb can be moved but there is lightening damage.The beholders, if killed, continue to come back until all the orbs are placed.
I particularly like this one. The MapTool file is here.
This is a gigantic map! I’ve done what I can to reproduce it from the MapTool file with good resolution, which means that it’s a big file.

Thank you so much to Josh Cayer for submitting these maps! I’ve already received some more maps from another cartographer, which I’ll be posting about soon. If you have maps you’d like to see hosted by the Online Dungeon Master, please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
