     Temporarily Out of Stock!

Rising Sun is Advanced Squad Leader’s long-awaited return to the jungles, islands, and atolls of the southwest Pacific. Multi-Man Publishing has combined the original ASL modules Code of Bushido and Gung Ho! into one monster package. Rising Sun includes the entire Japanese, Chinese, and United States Marine Corps orders of battle; a 2nd edition of Chapter G, which covers the unique rules needed to play ASL in the Pacific Theater of Operations and incorporates all the current errata; and an updated Chapter H for the Japanese and Chinese vehicles and ordnance and for landing craft. Also included are 32 updated scenarios, combining the original Code of Bushido and Gung Ho! scenarios with 16 out-of-print PTO scenarios that originally appeared in the pages of the GENERAL, the ASL Annual, and the ASL Journal. From the ASL Annual '93b comes the Gavutu-Tanambogo campaign game (Sand and Blood), a new 17˝×22˝ Gavutu-Tanambogo map, and Chapter Z pages. Scenario errata have been incorporated, and new errata have been issued for the older scenarios to reflect the balancing changes made to the updated scenarios. The package is rounded out by seven 8˝×22˝ geomorphic mapboards (boards 34-39 and 47) and dozens of overlays, all updated to match the latest style of boards. Both the rules and the counters benefit from a larger, more readable font.

Rising Sun is not a complete game; ownership of the Advanced Squad Leader game system is required to play the scenarios herein.

12/25/10: I predict that this review will still be here when the product page eventually "goes live." The publication of this module will require the city of Cleveland to import saki for the first time in history. Unfortunately, it will only be discovered too late that sushi is not a suitable convention snack food. Confusion will reign at ASLOK when the hotel simultaneously books a Bonsai convention. Enterprising ASLers will claim that miniature trees only deserve 1/2 the standard TEM, giving rise to the first erratum.

Of all the ASL modules, this is my favorite. I can say enough good things about this module. A must buy if you are an ASL fan and did not get the original modules. The HASL campaign game Gavutu Tanambogo is awesome.
