I'm going to go against the grain here and suggest you play the original Drakensang first, because it will make the River of Time experience all the more enjoyable. Plus it was made first, so it just makes logical sense from that perspective. I don't get all these types who like to eat the main course before the entree!

Whilst story wise it might make more sense to play River of Time as a prequel, ultimately its story is the longer and more fulfilling one and I'd argue that your overall impressions of the series will be greater by leaving it until later. Think of it as the reward for you endeavour!

One other criteria is to gauge what has attracted you to the series in the first place. If you've come from a Baldur's Gate background for instance, you may prefer the greater and wider party configurations that are possible in the first Drakensang game.

But if you're keen to have a deeper, tighter and longer experience but with less companions - by all means, play River of Time and Phileasson's Secret first.
It's up to you. Have fun regardless of what you choose and experiment.

Diddledy low,
Come brave blood sheep,
You've a goodly way to go.
