Thrall - My Heart Calling

Which system?

I hope you folks can help me out, because I'm getting frustrated here. I've been working on a homebrew system that among other things features an action point system - in essence every character has a point total to play with each round, the one with the highest total starts, and then loses points depending on the actions she takes until someone else has a higher total and takes over the initiative.

Now, I'm fairly sure I'm ripping this off from SOMEWHERE, and a friend I talked to earlier also says he's sure he's played in a system that had this mechanic... but neither of us can remember what system that is! Someone please tell me, so I can at least know what I'm plagiarizing?
