Ring RCT5 Compact First Aid Kit by Ring
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)

The semi rigid green box is probably the most useful part, as if you don't like these particular contents, you can always refill it differently.

The Engines of Light series, on the other hand, did nothing for me, I just found it a bit dull. The Night Sessions I found to be a curate's egg in the true meaning of the phrase, basically bad, but with some good bits.

The good news is that descent is definitely at the Fall Revolution end of the range. It is set in Scotland (where else) in the very near future, and tells the story of a young man, Ryan, between his late teenage, and becoming a… Read more
