There was a Yahoo Group (I think?) that I got involved with briefly through Steve Swann 3-4 (?) years back. As I recall there were general rules and a set of theater specific rules for The Falklands, and one other theater of operations that eludes me right at the moment. From what I saw, it looked like the rules were at a 2nd or 3rd pass level and seemed to have been thought out well. I wasn't involved for long, but the rules and few scenarios that I saw seemed to be focused on infantry actions, which is not surprising, ASL being a better infantry game than it is an armored game. My impression was there was a lack of critical mass?
Actually the Falklands Campaign is in playtest at present with 8 scenarios, counters for the Argies and Brits, and maps based on Falkland terrain. Anyone wanting to assist in the PT can join the MASL Yahoo Group. A CG (Goose Green I think) is also being worked on.

A dozen or so years ago, I got ahold of an amateur Modern ASL thingy. I don't remember too much about it but I believe it was photocopied material including rules and counters for Vietnam-era ASL. It was experimental, not really a completed system. It was just called Modern ASL, or MASL.

Anyone else have that or remember where it came from? I think I got it at convention, but maybe it came with an issue of ASLUG or something (Fort?).
Mark Neukom designed "Grounding Noriega" MASL 1.


Peace,

Yep that's the one.

You guys have good memories - I'd forgotten the name of the scenario or that the scenario even existed.

Kind of interesting that there is still a group going strong devoted to it. I figured it was just a one-off project that had been long ago abandoned.
