comment Starting the first game tips?
In my answer I am assuming that everybody read the PHBs with the descriptions of classes and races. The races and classes were picked because the players thought they sounded cool. For a game run in a store or at a convention where there are a lot of newcomers I would agree with your first sentence and limit the selections to something more generally known and understood.

comment Can AD&D Thieves Wear Studded Leather Armour?
What a magic item? I apologize for sounding ornery but it is an "special" item only crafted by the elves. To me that is a magic item as much as a +1 suit of chain mail. Granted it doesn't detect magic is some editions. But it also not just any suit of chainmail either.
