About the Pathfinder University – PFU
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 (they are welcome to leave at any time). 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.
PFU holds daily classes or events. All of them meet on the university mumble: golarion.mumble.com port 3093. You can download the mumble client at http://www.mumble.com The class schedule/list is at http://class.pathfinderuniversity.com and recordings of some of the classes are available at https://www.goblinworks.com/forum/topic/3230/.
Pathfinder University holds University Commons as a training grounds for those who want to try out settlement mechanics and the like. University Commons is an unaligned, neutral settlement located East of Thornkeep [5,1]
Pathfinder University will have an officer structure to allow people a chance to lead the company but will ultimately report to PFU Faculty. In this way the PFU Faculty are the only ‘permanent’ officers of the

Rules of the Pathfinder University
• No PVP within University Commons or the six core hexes surrounding University Commons unless it is in a tower pvp window or a Pathfinder University sanctioned event (i.e. a class on PVP).
• Pathfinder University is not allowed to take any towers, unless as part of a class.
• We follow the two rules of University Commons: 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. PFU takes donations from everyone and tries to give them items they need in return. (pay it forward)
• Being part of Pathfinder University is a privilege and subject to following the rules above.
Pathfinder University Faculty staff the help channel, University Commons and the University mumble.
Golarion/University Mumble Server
Join the Pathfinder University channel
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.
If you cannot get on Mumble, we will also be providing support in the Help channel (just click on the help tab and it should come up). Keep in mind that when you are in help you cannot see any whispers, so occasionally look in hex or local. To send a whisper type /w charactername, message (the comma is important) and to reply you can just type /r message.
Additionally, I (and others) will be in and/or around University Commons to help players. That means if you need gear (FREE to new players), want to go exploring, or just want to meet someone in game, come to University Commons. To get to University Commons, Press M for map, look towards the East for University Commons. Double click on University Commons and that will drop a pin that you can follow on your minimap and start running. To continuously run hit R and you can then sprint by hitting Ctrl.
As a side note, 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. There is also a guide for your first 15 days here.
If you have questions about PFU, please feel free to contact Hoffman Dean of PFU.
Pathfinder University also accepts companies as members.
If you are an unaligned company and looking for a home, you and your company can join PFU for 90 days. This will give you a settlement to work out of (University Commons) along with advanced training. You need to abide by all university rules but there are opportunities for you to build your company before finding your final ‘home. Contact Hoffman Grand Master of PFU.

Pathfinder University has been lucky to have wide server support. We crowdforged the following requests/rules of the University and our territory. They have been publicly supported by The Aeonian League, Everbloom Alliance, Emerald Lodge, Free Highlanders, Empire of Xeilias, High Road Covenant and Nation of Kathalpas. We at PFU truly appreciate their support and know we need earn their support everyday and we will strive to do just that.

The intent of the above is to make a semi-safe area for new players to grow.
Side note PFU Faculty have agreed upon a pact that if any time PFU becomes a political power, not neutral or the like, it will implode. Namely Foxglove (among others) have agreed to assassinate Hoffman (or anyone else in the Dean position) should the power be abused.

On these boards I never speak for TEO, only for myself or PFU. Contact me if you want to hold a guest lecture for PFU
