Somewhere near the bottom of this dungeon is the Ashlord’s staff. At least, that’s what the scrolls you recovered from the cave full of ember zombies seem to indicate. The Ashlord himself is obviously long gone from this world – an everburning lich isn’t something that just stops making public appearances.
The dungeon itself is centred around a 40 foot square shaft that descends about 80 feet from the balcony at the top level to the fiery glowing 12 foot hemisphere at the bottom. The Ashlord’s minions seem immortal in their way – their bodies slowly crumbling to ash when slain and then reforming within d4+1 hours in a flash of flames.
The 1200 dpi version of the map was drawn at a scale of 300 pixels per square and is 14,400 pixels (48 squares) wide. To use this with a VTT you would need to resize the squares to either 70 pixels (for 5′ squares) or 140 pixels (for 10′ squares) – so resizing it to either 3,360 pixels wide or 6,720 pixels wide, respectively.

Obvious temptation: The staff found at the bottom isn’t the Ashlord’s staff and it won’t take much to determine this. It is, however, what is needed to open the secret door on the top level and thus gain access to the actual staff. Bonus points if you can get the players to go all the way down, all the way back up, then all the way back down again to get the fake staff, (just in time for the minions to start respawning).
