To my knowledge, there is no new edition in the works, nor do I think there are currently any plans for it, but hypothetically, would a new edition be required at this juncture?
While I really like dT&T, I personally think they went a little too far in trying to bulk it into a larger, slightly crunchier game, taking away what was so great about T&T in the first place - that it's YOUR game.
By now, most people will essentially have their own edition. I'm not sure many people who use rules as written from any single edition, but instead cherry pick and modify rules to suit themselves. In this was, my 'edition' is different to someone else's 'edition'.

As a new troll on the block who has started with DT&T I have reached back to the older editions for ideas and conversions and to try things out. From the basis of DT&T the core theme is there use what makes sense to you.
No, I don't think we need a new edition. DT&T seems an almost optimal distillation of the core ideas, and I agree with Zanshin that if a new edition should ever get published it'll be because a new edition of designers have picked up the torch to carry it forward. For now it's up to you to chose what works for your game.
Not in this dimension. I did have a large tome called deluxe Tunnels and Trolls arrive, but I think that came through a probability fracture in the Universe from planet Kickstarter.

And unlike the Late Mr Heston, my hands are no less effective from being COLD AND DEAD.
Seriously though, we can all acknowledge that T&T can have as many Editions as current and future IP holders want, maybe even acknowledge they might be good, even steal bits off the body now and then...and still prefer the Classics.
BTW, I acknowledge that Metallica makes New Stuff-and even like some of it...doesn't keep me from preferring my Meatloaf albums though...
