Ok first up, welcome to the UDK forum/community, new people are always welcome :)

Ok, good news / bad news :
The good news : you definitely can make the game you've described.
The bad news : you definitely can't do it in 8 weeks.

The cold hard truth is that making stuff like this is a thousand times more complicated and time consuming than you realize when you're first starting out. BUT. Just because you can't build something huge, doesn't mean you can't build something small. I highly suggest you look at Hourences tutorials, ESPECIALLY his "Creating a UDK Game" tute (It's pretty much the grand daddy of getting started in UDK tutes).

The other thing you'll find quite quickly is that there is no start to finish making a game in UDK tutorial. Unfortunately the documentation and tutorials that are available are a bit like a giant scrambled jigsaw puzzle. Part of learning UDK is sifting through a mountain of said jigsaw pieces looking for bits that go together.

do you have any programming experience? if so you should be able to do something like this in 8 weeks. like the others have said you wont find a tutorial though. your best bet is to break down exactly what you want. you say a turn based system rpg. thats pretty broad.
if you bother to break it down you will find there are already some tutorials out there on rpg's and saving stats and stuff which you will need.

there are some of the things i've jotted down that i required for my turn based rpg, that should give you an idea of the basics you will need to research
