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?
>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.

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