This time, though, we wanted get you, our fair readers, involved as well.

RPS is out for the holidays. See you in 2022!

All right, folks, we’re now officially done and dusted for the year. 2021 is being brought to a close, and RPS is entering its annual hibernation period. We wish you a merry Christmas, a happy holiday, and a general Festivus for the rest of yous as we scuttle out of the RPS Treehouse for a couple of weeks and have a nice big sleep in our mountain of sweet wrappers. We’ll see you back bright and early on Tuesday January 4th 2022. Read more

Imogen is leaving RPS, come and say goodbye

As that age-old saying goes, all good things must come to an end.

Today is Imogen’s last day at RPS, so come and say goodbye. Read more

Get 35% off RPS yearly subscriptions this Black Friday week

It’s that time of year again, folks. It’s the week in November when the sky grows dark, the ground trembles underfoot, and wallets are busted open in the never-ending search for the biggest and best Black Friday deals.

From now until November 30th, yearly subscriptions to RPS are 35% off for new subscribers – and all you need to…

Nate is leaving RPS, come say goodbye

Every October, Nate disappears into a puff of smoke to be replaced by his good pal Ghoastus, the Roman ghost. Alas, his yearly ascent to higher realms has sadly come much earlier than expected this year, as today is Nate’s last day at RPS – come say goodbye. Read more

Help those affected by the Israel-Gaza conflict

The recent resumption of hostilities between Israeli armed forces and Hamas is taking a terrible toll on the people of Gaza, the West Bank and Jerusalem; at time of writing, over 200 civilians have died and thousands more are injured. Longstanding destruction of infrastructure, including loss of power and water, makes treating the wounded a challenge and exacerbates this humanitarian crisis. Help is urgently needed, particularly for Palestinians who make up the overwhelming majority of the casualties. Here we’ve listed some charities that are helping the most affected people in the region – please consider a donation. Read more
