Third Party Scenarios

Rout Report

The Rout Report was a newsletter published semi-regularly by DAGGER from 1990 to 1995. According to the Desperation Morale website:

The Rout Report was one of the most important of the first generation of ASL newsletters. It was important 1) because it published numerous scenarios, some of them quite good, 2) it was one of the only first generation ASL scenarios to have any sort of longevity at all, and 3) it proved that ASL and humor actually could, in fact, mix. The product of Detroit ASLer Kurt Martin (who later would go on to design a number of ATS products for Critical Hit) and Richard Rodgers, The Rout Report billed itself as "the journal for ASL adventurers." The newsletter started as a bimonthly, but soon became an annual release at ASLOK, the major ASL tournament held each year in Cleveland, with multiple "issues" released at the same time.

One scenario published in the Rout Report involved Canadians:

  • X4 "No Quarter"

Waffen-SS: No Quarter No Glory

Published by Heat of Battle in 1998, this was a scenario package featuring 6 scenarios and 240 die-cut counters, bringing the white on black colour scheme back to SS troops in ASL.

  • NQNG2 "The Precious Price of Time" dealt with Canadians and Waffen SS troops in Normandy.
