Hi people of /tg, I come here in peace to ask guidance.
I wanted to try pen and paper RPG for the first time, but I don't know where to start,so my question is...Which is the best RPG system to start with?
>>
What sorts of games are you interested in? Are you playing with friends?
>>
>>43051555
I would be the DM I think, and at the moment I have only one friend to play with. So maybe something that can be ejoyed by one player only.

>Which is the best RPG system to start with?

That depends, although all RPG's have the elements or roleplaying, world building, combat and dice roll, each RPG, at least those i know of have a focus point, while one is more focused in roleplaying, other is more focus in combat, reaching from small parties to even grand armies and other focus more in rolls to help GM's build they're own worlds. The easiest would obviously be one that focus more in what a GM want from a section. But if anything fails Everyone Is John is a great RPG to.

This.

What kind of setting or theme are you interested in for a game, OP? Lord of the Rings? Star Wars? Run Lola Run?
>>
>>43051511
FATAL, master it and all other games will be as easy as pie.

And, that is the only question you should ask yourself.

Sure, you have never played anything but what do you want to play?

>>43052144
I would love to try Dark Heresy, I'm in love with the Warhammer 40K universe, always hear it is very difficult though.

Dark Heresy is a perfectly fine first RPG, and should be able to handle a one-on-one game easily. Download or purchase the core rule book and start reading.
>>
If you really have no clear preference regarding the setting, just start with Dungeon World or one of its variations. Super easy, light on rules but heavy on storytelling, players can quickly create characters. Enough material to work with if you just want to find out whether pen and paper role-playing is your cup of tea.
>>
since this is a noob question thread:

do you always have to create new characters when playing another game/new campaign??
because I only want to play a mage/wizard type of character in every possible game
>>
>>43053647

You can play the same guy in a new game if you really want to, and it's your time, so enjoy it I suppose.

But why not try something else now and again?
>>
Give "Savage Worlds" a shot
