I'm sure you'll do fine. I'm also new to the game but I've discovered that PLAYING is actually a lot easier than reading through the rules.
Gameplay is surprisingly easy -- certainly easier than the rules make it seem. But after you play a couple of games, you'll go back and discover these little options that you forgot and will try out next time.
I can teach this game in about 10 minutes, assuming we have the reference sheets in the back of the rulebook handy. It's much easier to learn than a lot of my other games with much smaller rulebooks.
Thanks for your comment Brook!
The base mechanic is quite simple to grasp and can't wait to try the combat and see how it goes.
