Let's take a quick look at the new edition of Malifaux. Malifaux is 28mm scale skirmish game, in an alternate fantasy setting with a mixed dose of wild west, steampunk, and gothic horror. The game just entered it's second edition.
The new rulebook clocks in at 284 pages. A twist from the first edition rulebooks is that it has a fluff section, then gives you all the rules. Then there is another fluff section before the "army book" section for each faction. This is a great improvement over the original rulebook, where it would have 1-2 pages of rules, and then interrupt them for 1-2 pages of fluff, before continuing on.

Schemes are still in as well. Think of schemes as mini-missions, sub-objectives you can complete to additional VP. They can be revealed, becoming worth more VP, but you're opponent knows what you're doing, or kept secret, worth less VP but harder for your opponent to figure out what you're doing to stop it.
