Time Travel to the First Post of RPS!
Out of curiosity, I wondered what was the VERY FIRST post in RPS history. Since there is no "last page" button that I'm aware of I simply changed the page count in the URL at the top until I found the final page. So let me now present:
Rock Paper Shotgun Page 1141
(Please keep in mind that as RPS adds more posts this number will go up and will no longer be the final page.)
Doing so revealed some interesting posts, including the intro post, and a post timestamped as being published in 1999 informing the reader that "We rather puzzlingly havenít written anything else about that game yet" as well as a "best of rps" feature that is also timestamped before the first post of RPS.
Ah, you smarmy bastards.

It's so old the site is broken!

Oh that "best of round up" thing has some good stuff from before I read the site. Although funnily enough I swear I remember reading some of it (perhaps that was due to another best of) as John's attempts to get people to accept quests ring a bell.
