I actually do both. A couple weeks ago we didn't think we were going to play (death of a friend occured 3 days before our weekly Tues game). When Tues rolled around we decided to meet at my house and just hang out and drink a few beers. Needles to say after about a half our or so of drinking everyone wanted to play. This was a bit of a problem since our DM hadn't prepard anything for that week.

He and I had discussed swithching rolls anyway, because he wanted to play. So basically I got to run a random dungeon crawl with 5 minutes notice. I just set out pieces as they went and made up the story as well. It actually worked out great (The D&D miniatures and their stat cards were a life savor). At the end of the night the group had a blast and I used my impromptu story to begin a new direction for the campaign. We are now going into week 4 of my DMing and everyone is loving it.

I think trying to set pieces as you go, with a map of the dungeon probably takes more time then just making it up as you go. My guess is your players will never know the difference. I am planning on buying a black sheet. I think this would be the best way to go for pre set-up. The cards just give too much away. A nice black sheet should really keep them guessing, maybe even set a few stray pieces in areas where there is nothing.

War Duke,

It's Kinda' like My Tattoos... Every Now And Then I Rediscover them and Go WOW... Same With Gameing The Basics Still Can Go A long way rather It's with Fancy Toys or not, a Game is Only Going to Go as Far as the Collective Interest and Imagination of those Playing... Don't get me Wrong I Love the Toys, And I Love a Well Thought out Cohesive Plot, but Fact is a Game on the Fly CAN be a Great Reminder of Why we Do this Stuff at All... For me it is the "Adventure" of Painting an interactive World through Story Telling...

I do the same with my moles and scars. I have enough of those, who needs tatoos?
