It took me a while to find the right email adress to send it too, but I finally got into contact with Patrick Sweeney to ask about the deluxe version of monster Island.
Sadly his attentions have been set to other projects not related to firefly games, and while he may still have interest to make the deluxe edition of monster island happen someday, he is unlikely to ever get the time for it.
The good news is that firefly games will continue to be available for distributing the game, so it's not like the company really "died", but it's also not likely to see any official expansions of the product line any time soon.
I am not entirely sure if the same future is in store for the Faery tale rpg game, with the various adventures that where still planned for release, but it probably is dealing with the same problem.
So I guess it's up to the fans to continue to keep monster island alive and kicking, making our own ways to house rule any specific things we'd like to add or change.
The system is brilliantly simple, so I doubt many will have problems, and otherwise you can look out for house rules made by others to improve the game.
(Especially referring to the rules on the yahoo groups page)
Patrick Sweeney may take some of his time to leave a personal message here on the forum sometime in the future, but until then, you at least know what's up.
