    First of all, I do not get paid to GM, nor do I pay for that service as a player. However, I ask you to consider this: people pay master storytellers to entertain them -- Book Clubs, and other organizations pay for engagements with authors all the time. Should a GOOD storyteller who's medium happens to be Role Playing Games, not be afforded the same privileges?

    As I said above, I have never paid a GM to conduct a game though if they were REALLY good, I might consider it.

    If you want paid for your authoring/storytelling ability, package it up and sell it to others, IMHO. Good luck.

    I just created a heal effect with 1D6+4 and a 2nd line of the number of HD. So I created an effect for +1, +2, +3, HD, etc.

    I find your tennis analogy way off point to the point I question if you understand what you are paying a GM for. In my case, people pay because I create the adventures and campaigns from the ground up so they are paying me because they are experiencing a story. I view it as akin to being an author, I create the story and plot lines and the players influence the world I have created. As for your hubris comment, it isn't that we think we are all Mathew Mercer or anything close. It is strickly a matter of this is a story I created so why should I give away all the time it took me to develop it?
