Actually, not a mailing list, but a Usenet newsgroup. If you're ISP does not enable you to easily make use of a newreader client you can access this newsgrouap (and other) via one of the web-based Usenet providers, such as Google Groups. There is also a frequently asked questions (faq) maintained by Joshua "JD" Marquart . This newsgroup is not really dedicated to Champions/Hero, but, due to the number of Champions/Hero players who frequent the group it does tend to have a large amount of Champions/Hero discussion.
