Abaddon Swag Store Ahoy!

We’re excited to announce that the Edinburgh Resistance Abaddon Swag Store is open! Awesome hoodies, shirts, pin-badges with the blue Ouroboros logo and more are just a few clicks away.

Customised Abaddon hoodie

If you’re coming to Edinburgh for 14 November, you can choose to pick up your stuff in person, but otherwise we’re offering shipping to the UK and the rest of the world after the Anomaly event.

We hope there’s something there for everyone!
