On G.A.S.L.I.G.H.T. : The First of Several Posts in Which I Review the Game

The other day, Chris from Just Another Wargames Blog, left this comment:
You've been using G.A.S.L.I.G.H.T. for this campaign, so I assume you like it. So, sell me on it. What do you like about it? How does it compare to Sword and the Flame? Do you use the compendium or GASLIGHT battles?
I replied that I'd post a review.

But then I realized, while writing said review that it was way too much for a single post. I'm already at 3 physical pages and I've not said all I'd like to. Now, to be sure, I'll edit the hell out of it to make it more succinct, and I could probably even write one in under 100 words that would suffice for 99% of the people considering G.A.S.L.I.G.H.T. 

But hey, why have a blog if you can't ramble about a rule set?

So, over the course of this week, I'll be posting my thoughts on G.A.S.L.I.G.H.T. I'll discuss the original rules (I don't own Battles By or the Compendium) with some reference to The Sword and the Flame (as I don't own this, any comparison will be based on what I found online) and Soldier's Companion (which I have and which I have heard is similar to TSATF) per Chris's request.

Look for the first post later today!
