Debate fuels my Fire
Yes, although if I made it to the top 10 (big if!), I would politely turn that down and just ask to be put up for consideration as a freelancer for any new projects WotC's working on.

I've got no interest working as a "professional DM" for WotC, but I am interesting in working as a freelancer on future books. So the network-building is attractive to me, the performing not so much.

No. Because none of the required steps have anything to do with being a good DM (designer, maybe), and being good on a Livestream is a completely different set of skills than just running a great game (which includes entertaining an audience, having good camera skills).
It's like they don't understand what their game is even about.

Or they know that a lot of DMs have acquired those skills during the pandemic.

I'm always up for a chance to demonstrate my superior whip, chain and restraint techniques.
Found the drow.

I'd actually like to join for the sport of it but I'm actually terribly busy and I'm not even very likely to DM my own games.

If I find the time, I'll consider joining but I won't make promises.

As I said in the other thread, it seems like they're trying to find the next Matt Mercer. Which is great and all, but definitely not my gig.

I will enter. I doubt I will make the cut to the 10. These sort of contests get me off my rear and write some of the ideas that just fester in my mind. I enjoyed the setting search and will no doubt enjoy this 'DM's Got Talent'. Ideas are a dime a dozen, focusing the idea into something usable to others is a skill worth honing.

41st lv DM
Nope.
I might work cheap, but I won't work for free. And producing entries capable of winning would definitely be work with a very high likelihood of zero reward.

So no thanks.
 

Steampunkette

Shaper of Worlds
I'd love to.

But without some professional experience under my belt I don't feel comfortable chucking my work into WotC's fire in the hopes they'll advance me forward to another round of fueling their engines with my unpaid effort.

I'm too old to be an intern.
 

AcererakTriple6

Autistic DM (he/him)
I'm probably going to. I'm currently planning on doing so, but I'll have to see if I can actually get around to it. I'm fine with having to be restrained to their lore, and also am okay having whatever I come up with being owned by them. I've got quite a few things that I would like to see published in a 5e book, but wouldn't mind not getting paid/given credit for it.
