"Meet the 'Dungeons & Dragons' Players Who Make a Living Running Games"

Glixel:

Securing a seat in Armstrong's tabletop campaigns cost $100 per month. He is, without a doubt, one of the most in-demand professional game masters on the internet. Gamemasters are responsible for directing the adventures and storylines that weave through RPGs like Dungeons & Dragons and Pathfinder – they’re the people who decide when and where the scorpions emerge from the sand dunes. Armstrong is talented enough that his Patreon rakes in $3,300 a month, which meshes nicely with the 87,000 subscribers on his YouTube channel. For $2,000, he's willing to fly to your city and host an in-person session with you and your friends, but most of his business happens in the fellowship of Google Hangouts.
