I recently convinced my friends to try out a table-top RPG. Now, being an almost complete novice to table-top RPGs, and adding the fact that I will have to take point and GM this campaign... Is there any way I can ensure my friends have an enjoyable first experience playing these sort of things? I'm simply unsure of how a campaign for beginners should be. I know for a fact that PC deaths on the first campaign would really cloud their opinion. I'd like to ease them into that.
We'll be playing Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay, more than likely just getting the Core Set to get us started. Any tips and tales of experiences you had when playing WFRP for the first time, or from the perspective of experienced GMs when introducing beginners to WFRP or table-top RPGs in general.
