Dates will likely change through Summer 2021. That said, lots of news coming soon - subscribe to the newsletter (scroll to bottom of the page for signup) and we will be discussing future social media happenings, digital PDF offerings, and the new RSP YouTube channel.
Pre-order release schedule (ongoing adjustments): SM04 (delayed into May) & TA2 (May/June), TG01/02 (summer), and then SM05/06 (late summer). Dates will improve if COVID protocols relax in the coming months. Please remain patient and thank you for the support and understanding -- we are focused on the immediate issues and making steady, albeit, very slow progress.
