Hullo, DavetheLost,

Yep, there's a lot of beasties available for the game between the Rulebook and the Companion. I've got photos of pretty much every beastie from the two books that aren't available in the books, as well as a batch of others from creatures I've created in addition and the PRIMEVAL: NEW WORLD tv series.

Exactly why that's not going to happen, methinks.

There is a Series 4/5 book in the works, but nothing for the PRIMEVAL: NEW WORLD stuff, though I've done all the beasties from that series and most of the characters. (Don't whether it will ever see the light of day, though there's no P: NW book in the works.)
DavetheLost wrote: I am trying to think what actual new rules and crunch content I would like to see. Most of it comes down to more critters, and the gamer gear head love of guns, gadgets and gear, vehicles, etc. and in point of fact I don't feel a pressing need for lots of that. I run fairly rules light, so "heavy handgun" and "light handgun" are just fine for me. If I need the exact details of a particular model I can look them up easily enough.
The game is pretty much sufficient in terms of guns and the like, though for my own game I've slightly changed the numbers of tranquillisers. :)

As for more critters, the rules from the main rulebook are pretty adequate in terms of how to create beasties, and it's a lot of fun doing so. :)

Any chance you can post a list of the image links? :mrgreen:

That's quite a good idea, that is. :) However, please do me a favour and start a new thread with such links in them, as it would be nice to have all the links for beastie graphics in a separate thread. (Calling it something like... Oh, what the heck... I'll set up the new thread.) :)

Is there any idea about when the Companion will be sent to those of us who preordered?

I just recieve mine today in far upstate New York. I don't know where I am in terms of shipping time from the depot, but they should be making their way to everyone!

Sorry for completely missing your post, Jeff. Twice.

Preorders are en route (and arriving) with US and Canada pre-order customers. Stock is mid Atlantic for Europe and rest of World. So not long to wait now.

Any chance of finding out whether Dom arranged for a copy to be sent to me, Jon?

Since I get a contributor copy, I'm not sure what's happened in this regard. :)
