And when I started playing it, I really was into the thought of playing one system...for the most part. And occasionally dipping into other games. The reason: I really like the idea of learning a system with depth and variety. And one with a fairly active community. ASL fits the bill perfectly. I like that there's a podcast, The Two Half Squads, about it and active forums.
At the time I didn't realize I was such a magpie. I didn't realize I had OhShinyItus disease that affects so many gamers. I've come to embrace this side of me. Therefore, I've moved away from ASLSK for a bit. Though, I still have that longing to get into one system of some kind so strongly, that I really get it...dare I say, "grok" it?
There are a few good blogs that cover ASL, but one I enjoy, for his AARs, is Whine and Cheese ASL in Wisconsin. Great name by the way. He is so detailed in his writeups that I've been reminded lately how rich a story this game can build. Especially the hero, berserk, and other "advanced" rules I've not encountered in the starter kits.
He also does a great job of getting VASL screenshots from his games like the one below:
