You can get a plain text of what I assume is the backbone of the "new" rulebook over at Pinebox site.

http://pineboxentertainment.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/d... - Covers basic rules
http://pineboxentertainment.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/08/d... - Rule Compendium

This clarifies the rules and puts everything in plain English. The AEG rulebook was very thematic but the period language made it a bit confusing, particularly for non native speakers. I'm assuming the Kickstarter version will add some fancy art, some fiction etc.

Hope this helps!

Confusing? Yes, and not just for non-native speakers... shake

I thought AEG's Dec 22, 2015 revision of the rulebook (link below) did a good job... it expanded on many rules, added clarity to others, and added the latest rules from the expansions. It's what I've been using since getting back into the game.

Though it still has the thematic flavor text. I'm not sure what the issue is there, as the "period language" is in italic font and is always presented as a separate paragraph from the actual rules. I enjoy it, actually.

I haven't seen PBE's re-write yet... will be interesting to compare the PBE version from this:
