Default Malifaux- Rule book question

For those few of you out there that play this game I have a real quick quesiton for you. I was looking over the books section on the Wyrd website and saw that there was a full rule book that is no longer in print. However they have a small rule book that is labeled as a rules supplemental on the site. I was at my FLGS today and found the small rule book, the one that is about the size of the rule book that comes with the GW starter sets, and wondered if this was the only rule book that I needed to get into the game?

I noticed that their were two expansion type books that were available. Are these optional scenario books similar to apocalypse or storm of magic? or are they necessary for normal game play?

Thanks in advance all.

The current rules manual is the most up-to-date version of the rules and it includes 'all the Errata for the Original Rulebook and Rising Powers Book as well as including extra Diagrams, Quick Reference and a comprehensive Index.'

There is a downloadable version of this available on the Malifaux website that is a cut down version. It has all of the rules you need to play the game but some extras have been cut out to keep it simple.

Then there is the Twisting Fates expansion book that gives you some additional rules for Avatars along with stats for all the Avatars of Masters released up to that point. It also includes the next chapter in the engaging Malifaux storyline. However this expansion is not needed to play the game, only an additional extra like Apocalypse.

Hope that helps?

Regards,
Jake.

Wonderful. Thanks RC.

I find it kinda sad however that the Rules Manual doesn't have any of the fluff of the Malifaux world in it

The Malifaux fluff is great. If only they would release some novels...
