 In general, talk over the sort of character that the player wants to play, and the genre of story (investigative, action, adventure, //etc//.).

Then start a fight with one simple creature, like a dire rat or a fire beetle. Work up from there. In general, talk over the sort of character that the player wants to play, and the genre of story (investigative, action, adventure, //etc//.).
