Ready for your adventure?
How to play if you are alone
An adventure, especially through Dungeons and Dragons, is meant to be shared. Exploring forgotten ruins and fighting dreadful monsters is a wonderful was to discover the ingenuity and spirit of your friends or family. These situations allow people to experience unique and intense moments that can create a strong bond between players which is so hard to maintain in today's society.
So, what do you do when you cannot find companions to come with you?
Unknown Echoes will help you find a solution tailored to your situation and needs which will enable you to start the adventure that you have been dreaming of.
- The best solution
Role playing games can seem intimidating to a new player. Many people think that these kinds of games are only for specific groups or communities, however, they are wrong. There is something for everyone in a roleplaying game, whether you like fantasy, science-fiction, sports or thrillers. Whoever you are and wherever you come from, there is always a chance that there is a type of adventure for you.
If you would like to play, the best way is to play with a group. Learning the rules can be easy with the right tools and guidance. One you have a basic understanding of how the game is played, it will be easier than you think to convince the people around you to join in your adventure. You can also convince them to discover the game alongside you in one of our adventures. If you need good arguments and help convincing them, don't hesitate to contact us.
- Join another group
If you cannot manage to get your friends or family interested, there are still many other ways for you to play. First, try going to your local game store and talk with the personnel there. Many of them do play and would be willing to accept a new member into their party or create a new group.
The second option is to contact gaming associations in your region. Many of them have lists of people who are willing to play.
If neither of those options pan out, then you can contact Unknown Echoes and we will put you on our wait-list. We will then look ourselves to find groups that could have room for you or wait until there are enough people on the list in order to form a new group.

- An adventure all to yourself
You are more of a lone wolf than a socializing bard. Playing with strangers honestly doesn't suit you. You would rather live your own adventure without having to accommodate the hectic schedules of others?
That is understandable. We offer individual sessions ranging from a single initiation into Dungeons and Dragons, all the way to your own personal campaign.

Do you need help?
Despite its simple nature, a roleplaying game can be difficult at times. People can get into arguments; schedules don't work together, and a campaign may not go where you want it to. The rules become problematic and it is difficult to immerse yourself in the game.
Whatever your problem may be, we are here to assist you. It is our goal to help you enjoy your Dungeons and Dragons game as much as you can. Our long hours of experience playing has allowed us to be confronted with a vast number of game-related issues that we have learned to resolve efficiently. We also work with a certified psychologist which allows us to have a more insightful and complete approach when solving problems.

> As a game master
Creating a universe is no simple task. Whether it be mapping out your world, piecing together its history, creating a compelling story line or even balancing its magic and cosmos, you will be overwhelmed at times and that is normal. But what if you feel too lost? Not only do you need to create a world, you need to look after your players and that is always a challenge.
We can provide you with feedback and advice on all of your creative work from a player and game master view. If your problems are not in the creative aspects of role playing but in the social department, we can help as well. We can offer advice and solutions in order to ease a campaign and spare the friendships involved.
Please don't hesitate to contact us through our email, contact formula or by setting up a phone appointment. Our advice is always free.
If your problem is more complex however, we can arrange meetings in person or join in on your sessions in order to get a better understanding of the problem. We can organize a meeting with you and your players in order for everyone to get a chance to speak up. This is of course the best way to solve problems around the table, it is however a service for which we request payment.
