Pathfinder University Classes for new players - held daily

Hoffman
About the Pathfinder University - PFU (previously known as River Academy):

Pathfinder University (PFU) is a company and home for new players (in their first 90 days) that provides support, training (including regular classes) and fun for those who are just learning PFO. A player can only be a member of the Pathfinder University for their first 90 days. After their first 90 days they need to move to another company in PFO. The intent of the Pathfinder University is to give people a place to grow, try things out, and then move to the right company/settlement for them. Pathfinder University will be a collaborative (sharing in resources and supplies) and will have regularly scheduled events and classes.

Classes will be held on Mumble, taught by companies from across the map and open to all. Pathfinder University holds RiverBank as a training grounds for those who want to try out settlement mechanics and the like. RiverBank is an unaligned, neutral settlement located in the South West Plains [-09.18}.

Pathfinder University Faculty staff the help channel and the University mumble.

If you haven't tried Mumble it is a voice chat program that can be downloaded here. You do not have to have a microphone for your computer as you can still type, but at least you will be able to hear the conversations. If you have trouble with mumble, their support page is here.

There is a new player guide on what to do in your first 15 days here. most everything is in the encyclopedic 'Cheatle's Guide'. This guide is both a guide itself and a guide to guides. For those who prefer more pictures and a prettier guide, check out SSpitfire's guide.

To join PFU, click on the tower icon in the top left, put University in search bar, hit return, select Pathfinder University and then click apply. Or you can type in chat /vcjoin Pathfinder University

  • Pathfinder University is not allowed to take any towers, unless as part of a class.
  • We follow the two rules of RiverBank: 1. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you and 2. Don’t be a jerk.
  • Pathfinder University members are not allowed to make or sign any treaties or long term agreements. Trade agreements or the like must be time limited (i.e. no more than 90 days).
  • Donate what you don’t need to others. Pathfinder University will have a bank where you can donate or list them on the auction house for 1 copper. (pay it forward)

Hoffman,

Now with EE5 and the Diety/Alignment blog out, I would like to request a class for Paladins (Fighter/Clerics), I am not sure where to start and some guidance would be welcome. smile

Attention new players: ** get on mumble! **

seriously, it's the most important thing you can do to learn the game!

Why fill general chat with game mechanics questions when you can corner a vet in a chat room and get your answers ten times faster.

absolutely! We can surely do a ftr/cle, domains and alignment class, but if you want actual info on the plans for the paladin role, we may need a dev to give that class.

and yes, this is obviously a good place to request new classes.

While I've had the topic come up in the Q&A sections of my chats it might be interesting to do a speculative 'future classes' lecture and how to partially prepare. I'll do some research and maybe slot that to fill out my 4 week cycle. Good idea.

bah.. that should have been an edit of the above post, not a reply…

(@Duffy - i'm maybe moving a bit fast here, but i put that speculative class up on the rotation already).
