    Wow, I was just thinking about DMing games to raise money to reach a specific goal. I agree its DMing for money isnt really great but honestly the money you guys were giving as examples isnt much money at all. I wouldnt have much issue paying a small amount to get the opportunity to play a game. Now if the game is bad of course then I wouldnt pay that person again.

    If its cheap then Ill consider it. Unfortunately good or bad DM, it takes that DM personal time and effort to get a game happening. I do think it changes the dynamic a bit for good and bad. If Im paying then my expectations are a bit more but also its like satisfying an itch. I get to play. But if its a friend and no money then its usually better because you can develop a better friendship and better jokes at the table. I dont see an issue with the idea. Actually Im DMing a game right now but Id like to play a bit and the idea of paying a DM to get me up a level sounds like fun. (As long as its less than a movie ticket 😉 )
