I've got a Primeval game going on rpol.net, but it would seem my group is the only one playing this great game.

Anyone else out there still playing? Care to share some of your gaming experiences?

What would help players to get behind the game would be pregen character sheets of the show. Just saying....

Hullo, silverfoxdmt73,

Not to mention the fact that the appeal of the first two games is much larger than the appeal of Primeval ever was or could be, given the history of both DOCTOR WHO and LORD OF THE RINGS, while the third game has a life of its own it seems.

I watched the PRIMEVAL tv series when it first came out, and was thrilled when the game was announced by the folks at C7. While I hoped that it would be embraced on its own, and it was to some extent, it never got the love that DOCTOR WHO and the game got simply because it's not as long-lived, it didn't air where a lot of folks could have watched it, and for a variety of other reasons. I prefer the time travel concepts and the basic premise of the show to that of DOCTOR WHO (though I love Classic Who) myself, but I guess that's neither here nor there.

Indeed, it is. :)

My games of Primeval have been going on since slightly before the game came out. I was blogging about them here, posting up links to my LJ pages, but stopped doing that for various reasons that escape me. You can check out my adventures for the game with all three of my gaming groups by following the link.
