I'm new where do I start?

Please read our New Player's Guide, it contains some basic and very useful things you should know when you first arrive here.

There are no Skill Gates in Paradise Found. We have a custom Training Oasis. You may use programs such as Razor and EasyUO to train your skills.
Religio has made some super EasyUO scripts for Paradise Found here.
You can use a Skill Ball to raise any skill you choose to use it on.

This is an acceptable behavior on Paradise Found for skill gains only, however it is asked that you do not run macros near areas where you may interrupt other players.
AFK Macroing for gold or resource farming is not acceptable at any time.
AFK training of pets is not allowed.
Please read the rules here (AFK macroing= running a Razor macro or a script while you're away from your keyboard).

Is there a list of user commands?

What is the stat cap?

What is the skill cap?

There is no skill cap. You can raise all your skills to 100, up to 120 with Power Scrolls. Some items such as the The Cloak of Sir Kenshin will add properties which go over the 120 skill cap.

Is PK, PVP or stealing allowed on this shard?

Non consensual PVP is not allowed here in Paradise. Two players deciding to duel may do so outside of towns. A player deciding to look for another player out in the world to kill is not an acceptable idea. Violators of this rule will be punished (PK=Player Killing, PVP=Player vs Player combat).
Snooping, stealing, and other offensive actions to other players within the realm of Paradise Found is NOT permitted. If you are asked to stop and do not you will be dealt with accordingly.
Please read the rules here.

Can I have more than one account?

Players are allowed ONE account and ONE character ONLY.
If more than one account is needed for a single IP / household, you must contact Admin to create the additional account. Please read the rules here.
You can get a second account for yourself when you have GM'd all your skills (see below).

When will my inactive account be deleted?

Usually inactive accounts are deleted 1 year from the last login. There are various exceptions since each case is evaluated by staff.

Below is reported a complete answer on this matter from Damara, PF Administrator:

Since Paradise doesn't do IDOC (In Danger Of Collapse) like UO shards, we do have the server set up to notify me when a player has become inactive. Once a player hits the shard's maintenance list (the delete list if you prefer), I look for any pre-existing reason why that account shouldn't be deleted (military assignment, long-term hospitalization, financial difficulties, PC died and must wait until xxxx to replace it, divorce, etc.). Most accounts will be deleted after one year inactivity, with only a few exceptions previously listed. If you created an account for less than one hour, I may delete your account at six months. The reason for the shorter time is that it actually benefits the player to begin anew with new training weapons and [Young] status timers.

I spend a lot of time on maintenance when it's due. I search for all attached accounts (don't want to delete one family member and leave five others) and check all their last log-in dates. I check the inactive player's house to see if they have a book locked down to explain their absence. I check my emails. I check the forum private messages to me. I go to the house, and pull up the player to see if it's a newbie lookie-lou who was here for 3 days and never came back or if they've played for a year or more and have a lot of items, skills, donation items, evos, etc. If the player is nude or just in a robe and they've given all the good items away, they're gone. (And y'all best hope you aren't talking to me while I'm in the process of deleting. We once had a mistake and deleted an active player instead of a gone one and we had to quickly crash the shard to return them. When you have tiny print and it's close together, it's easy to hit line 4 instead of line five, especially if you sneeze at the wrong time. So if I say I'm busy deleting, you don't want to keep chatting with me.)

Once the player's account is gone, everything associated with them is gone also. The one exception to this would be a player vendor they may have had at the player vendor mall. So, if they are no longer on your guild roster, then they are probably gone. If they are still listed on your roster and their last log-in date was over a year ago, there may have been a reason they were extended. My extensions are for an additional six months. Military personnel will get two extensions since many tours-of-duty are for two years and we don't want to penalize them for doing their service for our country and being in an area they cannot log in.
