Who said anything about making money? Most of the folks I've played with in
the last 20 years would do it for a variety of reasons:

1) Nobody else is, so it's a new frontier to explore
2) to prove that it could be done, after they were told it couldn't.
3) Raw curiostity, which is why the NPCs would do it in the first place
(basic human nature)

There are more, but you get the idea. Curiosity, if nothing else. Role
playing considerations of some types of character. Because some bright player
realizes that knowledge that no one else has gives him an edge.

Is the "why" really that hard to figure out?
