I like the visual appeal of the mult-level setup--I'm even going to pursue making a set of risers for myself but in the past, I've done as RF has, setup the second level on another part of the table.

Party seperation has always been a tricky thing to handle as a DM. On the one hand, you've got the thief sneaking around behind everybody else who missed the hidden alcove and subtle locking mechanism while the rest of the party forges ahead and descends a stairway to the next level down. BANG! Ouch! The thief gets trapped in the room and possibly gassed whilst simultaneously the stairs have shifted into a very steep ramp with oily ooze creeping down... what do you do?

It's like running two games at once at that point so really, it seems to me that it wouldn't matter whether or not the layout is on two levels with risers or on the same table as far as play is concerned.

Good post.
