How to Leave a Campaign

If a campaign's schedule, style, or something else just isn't working out, you can leave at any time using the options provided by your StartPlaying Player profile. Here you'll find out how to leave a campaign altogether. Further down, you'll see how to skip a single session.

Go To Your Player Dashboard

Open the drop-down menu using your profile icon on the top right of the StartPlaying home screen. Click on "Adventures."

Find The Campaign You Wish To Skip Or Leave

The "Upcoming Sessions" tab will show you any campaign with future sessions scheduled. Find the one you want to skip or leave and click on the session's picture or name.

Leaving A Campaign

When you click on the session, it will take you to an "Adventure Details" page that lists several options. You'll see a red button labeled "Leave Campaign" sitting under the "Skip Session" button. This is what you click to leave a campaign for good. When you click it, you will see a pop-up that asks for more details.

You will need to select who is leaving the game. This is where you can cancel for only one player in cases when you have multiple players signed up on one account. You can also select a reason for leaving that the GM will see, and can go into more detail that the GM won't see using the provided text box. Hit "Confirm" when your finished and you will officially be out of the campaign.

Leaving A Campaign That Doesn't Have An Upcoming Scheduled Session

Let's say you want to leave a campaign but the GM doesn't have the next session scheduled in advance. In that case, you might not see what you're looking for in the "Upcoming Sessions" section. In this circumstance, head to the "Past Adventures" tab right next to Upcoming.

From there it's the same as leaving an Upcoming campaign. Click on the campaigns picture/title, find the red "Leave Campaign" button, and confirm.

Skipping A Single Session

If you only need to miss a single upcoming session due to scheduling conflicts or the like, hit the "Skip Session" button. You will be prompted to select which session you want to skip (in case the GM has multiple future sessions scheduled) and to confirm. If you skip a session by mistake, you can easily rejoin by hitting the same button, which changes from a "Skip Session" button to a "Rejoin Session" button when you've skipped.

Cancelling A One-Shot

To cancel your signup for a one-shot session, follow the exact same steps as skipping a session. Since a one-shot is a single session game, skipping the session is akin to leaving the one-shot.

Message the Game Master

Any time you need to skip a session or leave a game permanently, please make sure that you reach out to your GM and explain the situation. Having players randomly drop out of a game can be very confusing and frustrating when you don't know what happened. A short message to let them know why you had to leave can be very helpful. If you don't feel comfortable messaging them for any reason, you can also email us or message us through the chat, and we will do our best to help you out with the situation!

If for any reason the above options don't work, please reach out to StartPlaying Support and we will do our best to make sure it is fixed for you!
