As part of my semi-annual Twiddlin' Of the Thumbs Whilst Administering Exams rituals next week, I plan to amuse myself by doing some more in-depth calculations to test this theory. My question: are any of you aware of such a phenomenon (or the debunking of), be it in D&D or otherwise?
Two: For various reasons, I'm looking for a system that uses backwards narration (though I'm sure there's an actual technical term for it): start by describing the present situation, describe the events that immediately led to the present situation, lather, rinse, repeat as needed. IIRC, somebody here had mentioned The Puddle many many moons ago, but I've been unsuccessful in tracking it down. Keeping in mind that I'm a try-before-you-buy kind of guy and a cheapass to boot, any suggestions?
