History

When the ASL list was served manually, Chris Farrell started putting together a Digest of interesting variations, scenarios, etc. Later a few brave souls including the infamous Brian Youse put together an "e-publication" called the ASL Digest. After many issues, which were accessible via ftp at Damar and elsewhere, were distributed, the authors had to cease. Tim Hundsdorfer later took up the reins as editor of the Digest and kept it going, almost singlehandedly, for 10 months! Tim's new role as dad, and his burnout with the list prompted him to give the Digest over to John Slotwinski. John took the reins for a while then got swamped like most of us by life. Finally Terry Ford gathered the materials in 1998, afterwards only the actual ASL Mailing List remained for feedback and materials...

ASL Mailing List

The ASLML started by a group of people with a common interest in (some would say obsession with) the game of Advanced Squad Leader. For the benefit of those who were unfamiliar with what a mailing list is, rather than mail individually to each other, they all sent mail to a central list server instead (advanced-sl@multimanpublishing.com), which then automatically forwards our mail to all list members.

Topics include rules questions/debates (often the same thing!), reviews of ASL products, PBeM game requests, scenarios, tournament announcements, and all manner of things related to ASL. During the last years - as other sites and forums emerged in importance - the mailing list seems to lose influence, since it is less accessible than eg. the Gamesquad fora or Consimworld.

We provide full access to all available monthly files of the ASLML.
