Kymil/Dom buttons update

Requiescence backing cards arrived, so we’ve packaged up some of the missing merch this past weekend. They’ll be up on the store in a few weeks!

Some Kymil buttons packaged up
Some Dominic buttons packaged up

IMPORTANT: Due to Gamma leaving Seattle for a bit, orders placed July 22-Aug 3 will be processed beginning Aug 5 and shipped beginning Aug 7.

Unfortunately, it’s rather difficult to just “close” the store temporarily, so you will still be able to place orders while Gamma’s out of town. Just be aware that there will be additional delays in receiving them!

More Red Embrace languages

Red Embrace is very popular with the international community, and we’ve received two more fan translations: Italian and Polish! Implementing the full localization patch will require a significant amount of time, especially with SCU in its final development stage.
