Long-time D&D player & an occasional DM here.
I’ve been looking into Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay (WFRP) system and I would like to try it out before I decide whether to convert the campaigns for it to D&D 5e (I love the Warhammer Old World setting itself).
it’s a nice mix of Tolkienian fantasy (elves, dwarves, etc) with a good amount of trope-busting and genre-defying aspects, and of course a bit of grimdark (it is Warhammer after all.) It typically doesn’t take itself too seriously.
One difference between D&D and WFRP is that in D&D it is: look there is a troll, let’s run over and kill it; In WFRP it is: look there is a troll, let’s run before it kills us.

I’d be interested in running the starter set adventure with premade characters to learn the mechanics as a group, playing live on a weekly or bi-weekly period. If that goes well, I would run another short campaign or three with players making their own characters. And see where it goes from there.
If this piques your interest, do let me know and we can talk some more about it!
P.S. I am a 27yo Guy, and everyone is welcome! As I pointed out, we will be learning the game together
