I'll tell you a couple of mistakes I made in my first ever campaign. Though it was a long time ago.1. I gave too much rewards. With gold and equipment. It needs to be a challenge for the rewards to mean something.2. It's not you vs the players. Your players will not follow every path you give them. Let them do their thing, your job is to make the world up as they explore and fight in it.
Don't stress the rules for first time learning. If none of you are sure as to what to do in a specific situation, just make a snap call on how to resolve the problem for the moment and then go back after the game is over to check the rule books. Keeping the game going so everyone has fun is more important than making sure everyone at the table knows a single line of the rules.Good Luck, and Happy Gaming
