As mentioned in your other question - (good job on the board making)... the game is all storytelling. There are lots of prefab stories you can download or purchase from game stores - or the dm (or gm) can write their own. The story is the most important part. You tell a story through imagination and send your characters through dungeons and adventures. The game system is just there to provide rules for how a character can act, and abilities they can use. A lot of the game is based on chance success - affected by your character's stats. If your character is fast, they are more likely (in odds out of 20) to hit fast moving objects - etc. Like you said you have all the books - give them a read to understand the basic rules.

the only way to learn is to play. if you're planning to do 4E, H1 Keep On The Shadowfell is a very simple adventure basically a tutorial for 4E. read the dm's guide let the players choose one of 5 prerolled characters and the set apon them with cobalts in less than an hour.

A cheap/free resource.  Look up GURPS online.  That's General Universal RolePlaying System...  Great for making up your own stuff as it is not nearly so detailed/complicated as DnD.  Rules Lawyers need not apply.

If you really want to know, get a set of the manuals - they frequently turn up on ebay. However, if you're happy with your own-made set, why not stick with that?
