Episode 247: Does Being A Paid GM Change Your Game, Gaming Perspectives with Saul and Jolene
In this episode Saul and Jolene talk about a question saw on Facebook that asked, "Does being a paid GM change your game? There were plenty of comments and Saul picked out a few to discuss how it correlated with being a paid GM.
One comment was asking if the GM would be considered to be a player in an RPG game. For Saul it seemed like a silly question but if you really dig into the issue it is not so easily answered. Another commenter didn't like the use of the term play because they thought it didn't fully describe what a GM does.
Finally Saul and Jolene discuss how being paid might affect the GM in their approach to GMing. Whether it included more prep, more props, maps, voices, and added stress to perform.
For Saul he used the idea of being a Con GM Vs Running Home games to show how he tackles a Con game in comparison to a home game. Extrapolating that to being paid Saul believed it would surely impact his approach and responsibility over putting on a good RPG game.
Thank You all for listening.
