Do People Really Pay for a Professional Game Master?

Increasingly, yes!

The RPG Network facilitates people finding and booking safe, higher quality, professional  services.

RPG Professionals are paid to provide recreation services at a superior level for 1-shots, conventions, birthday & other parties, shows, fundraisers, campaigns, schools, healthcare facilities, community centers, etc.

RpgNetwork.net Professionals are not your average RPG participants and game masters. They must meet higher standards.

Customers only have so many hours of free time each week, and they want to make the most of their leisure time and money. Setting higher standards improves the likelihood that they will get the most out of their recreation experience.

Our mandatory background checks help improve the safety of those interested in our services.

For those that want a higher quality experience, increasingly people are willing to pay for RPG Professionals, such as Game Masters, RPG Facilitators, etc., for the safer and better entertainment experience.

One way some people look at this is from a group perspective. Paying a GM $20/hr, split between 5 players is only $4/hr per player, This is usually much less than a move theater ticket (and far more rewarding than passively watching any show), and extremely in line with most other (usually competitive) paid recreational activities (laser tag, go cart racing, the county fair, and many others).

Compared to the typical $10-$20+ for 90-120 minutes in the movie theater, passively watching a movie. Or easily spending $50-100+ in just a few hours of laser tag, etc., these services which are cooperative and fully interactive are an excellent investment toward receiving a quality, memorable, superior recreational experience.

Paying for professional game masters is not yet an everyday occurrence, but it is growing exponentially!

The RPG Network Founder, Hawke Robinson, A Washington State Department of Health Registered Recreational Therapist, has been paid as a GM since the mid- 1980s. Paid to GM games at weekly campaigns, conventions, fundraisers, parties, and other special events. Prospective RPG professionals pay RPG Therapeutics LLC to train them to become better players and GMs, and/or bring RPGs into their professional facilities (schools, rehabilitation facilities, long-term care, community centers, etc.).
