Scrolls and Potions are permanent once created. You can see this by the rule in various editions that they are good until consumed or used.

comment What role-playing games should I pick for an absolute beginner group?
It went very well, character creation was straight forward and they easily grasped the intricacies of combat. Novice referees I found got the idea of creating underground maze as a place to adventure straight forward. However I don't see how adding that is germane to my answer. I noted the advantage of using the system and why along with material to help to get the most of it. I don't need to add that I been refereeing 30 years for a variety of groups at different skill levels along with helping novices to make the answer any better.

comment Staying in character and taking it all seriously
Played LARPS, even owned a LARP chapter for several years. I do agree it is easier in some respect. For example when you are talking with NPCs you are really talking to a group of folks like you would in real life instead of a single referee playing a bunch of personae. But LARPS have their own limitation due to the live-action and are not as flexible in the variety of situation they can depict. I feel it is more accurate to say that they both have strengths and weaknesses in terms of roleplaying.
