    Default WHFRP: Learning The Ropes?

    I've read the Corebook for the latest edition of Warhammer Fantasy Role Play, but I still feel like I'm not ready to play a live-fire session of the game because my primary experience is with d20-based games like D&D, Pathfinder and Starfinder, fairly forgiving games while WHFRP's reputation as a darkly comedic meat-grinder where your PC's horrible death is not a question of "if" but "when" precedes it.

    So...when it comes to making a character who can survive as long as possible, how do I go about doing that? What are the best talents and skills to take, and what are traps best avoided? How do you build a functional party, since the game doesn't build your role in the party directly into a class the way d20-style games do? What tips and tricks have you more experienced players learned that you might impart to a scared n00b like me?

    Thank you in advance for your kind attention and advice.
