Is the cat out of the bag?

There is a second edition of MGT in the works. I'm not allowed to say more about it.
When does this become official?

What's on the menu?

Am I just dumb and have missed this elsewhere?

What do y'all know?

I'm still waiting for Traveller Prime Directive, which actually was announced and pre-ordered and all. :)

It is Schrödinger's cat.

Now if it was a zombie cat, it would fulfill both conditions. :mrgreen:

Lemme get this straight, version 2 of the Mongoose Core Rules is currently in a box with some kind of radioactive isotope and by definition is currently both released and not released (it's only two possible states).

And, only by opening the box will we know it's state?

More like you will only know if it's live or dead by the release.

Forget the isotope there's a cat sleeping atop of it that even lions would rather not disturb... can they find the right motivation to coax the cat off their manuscript before that bed becomes either a scratching post or worse a litter tray?! :twisted:

I usually tell people to whom I'm describing this experiment to think of it being a puppy in the box. A soft, fuzzy yellow lab with big puppy eyes.

And usually at that point people are staring at me with this "How could you be so HEARTLESS" expression.

Science. Couldn't be simpler.

Schrödinger's aslan both alive and dead? Now that's a verschränkung if I ever heard one. Both a Major race and not.

Depends on how far the humans giftwrapped jump drive technology or not, and whether an Aslan Crazy Eddie could have solved it on it's own.
