  1. The idea is really good, but I feel the implementation could use some work. Are the non-sequitur attempts at humor in all the callouts really necessary? They just bloat the text and get in the way of the explanations they're trying to provide. For example, in the Cover/Concealment box on page 36, there's a whole paragraph of unfunny tangent before the actual explanation. The joke doesn't even tie thematically into what's being discussed. It doesn't add anything except for extra words the reader has to sift through before getting to the point. In contrast, look at the Cheating callout on page 27. The joke is short, at the end of the section, and thematic to the explanation. It's not in the way of the information. I've always really like the background wackiness of Malifaux in the context of funny attack and trigger names, but most of these are just really forced and come across as juvenile. Reading them reminds me of the old Page 5 from Warmachine and would put me off the game if the rulebook was my first exposure to Malifaux's sense of humor.
