I believe this is the order of release for the Rulebooks and Chronicles. I would assume the chronological order of the fluff would follow this same sequence:

 

Chronicles vol1 & vol2: Pre-release

Core Rulebook August 2009

Chronicles vol3: Just after release

Rising Powers Book: August 2010

Twisting Fates: Late 2011

Storm of Shadows: Late 2012

Chronicles vol4 - vol 6: early-mid 2013

Core 2nd Edition: late 2013

Chronicles vol7 - vol10

I am second about your request. I would totally buy a book with all the fluff and novels in it. That would be awesome.

I am a newbie who want to start the game now, so if I would like to know all about the fluff I need to buy every big book just for the stories. It's not too economical since the rules and stats are useless in the books.

So please Wyrd Games just think about it. Maybe a kickstarter campaign would be a great solution too for a story book.

Just as a heads up, in case you weren't aware, Wyrd has the old big books on sale through their store for just $7.50 a pop. Compare that to the $35 MSRP and its quite a bargain. I picked mine up this way and don't regret it. The old lore is great!

Hello!

I hope not making any mistake necroing this thread, but I think this one need to be updated now... ^_^

I'm trying to define the chronological order of malifaux stories, or at least of the supplement realeases and the "correct" order of reading them.

I used the released dates I found on drivethroughRPG, but I get some holes... Can anyone help me to fill the gaps??? Thanks... ^_^

 

So, the order as I managed to build at the moment is:

Chronicles vol1 & vol2: Pre-release

Core Rulebook (1.5e): August 2009

Chronicles vol3: Just after release

Rising Powers Book (1.5e): August 2010

Twisting Fates (1.5e): Late 2011

Storm of Shadows (1.5e): Late 2012

Chronicles vol4 - vol 6: early-mid 2013

Core 2nd Edition: late 2013

Chronicles vol7 - vol12 (???)

Malifaux - Crossroads Expansion - 2E (july 2014 ???)

Chronicles vol13 (???) - vol19 (2015.08.20)

Malifaux - Shifting Loyalties - 2E (2015.09.11)

Chronicles vol20 (2015.10.19) - vol25 (2016.08.25)

Malifaux - Ripples of Fate - 2E (2016.10.04)

Chronicles vol26 (2016.10.04) - vol31 (2017.08.31)

Malifaux - Broken Promises - 2E (2017.10.16)

Chronicles vol32 (2017.10.19) - vol34 (2018.02.19)

 

Now, as you can see, my gaps are:

1- where to place exactly the Crossroads Expansion??? It was realeased effectively on july 2014? It is between wyrd Chronicle n.13 and n.14???

2- Ripples of Fate and Chronicles 26 both have the same release date (2016.10.04), so what's the order in the stories in these books? Comes first the Ripples of Fate expansion or the Chronicles 26???

 

Many thanks to anyone that will take time to reply to this! =)
