Oklahoma, Norman, near OU. I have purchased three copies of the book (and would buy a PDF if I could). Even though I have not yet actually run the game, as a veteran GM (since the late 70's - you name it, I has run it*), I can see that this is an awesome game. My players are all gamemasters with various active campaigns, so it may be a while before I get to venture into Gaia, but that is more time for me to make sure I get it right for my particular troup.
I have noticed that all of my books have binding issues. They do not seem like they are going to actually fall apart, the saddlestitching is secure though the spine has separated from the binding and leaves some pages misaligned. Only time will tell if this will become a problem. I have had to "dissect and notebook" gamebooks in the past (my GURPS 3rd edition books were notorious for pages falling out).
I am working on a player handout to help with character creation in conjunction with the material offered on this forum and the french site (Thanks! You guys are wonderful).
*That is a blatant lie. I am only 50 years old and there are many tabletop RPGs, even old classics, that I have not played. However, I have tried my best to sample them all.
