I requested to Join. I also took the plunge yesterday and bought the hard back Tome of Awesome. I've been reading the PDF and this system is very nice.
I'm not so big a fan of Google +. But I bought the Tome of Awesome hardcover yesterday too, on the strength of your reviews. I have to say that it looks perfect for introducing my kids to the hobby.And it's just gonzo enough, without being too gonzo. A great mix of stuff, the kind of thing to fire a kids imagination without putting any limits on them.
There's a Facebook page which seems to have a lot of followers; any plan to post the G+ community info on the FB page?
