Our team has often joked about making our manuals more interesting by
writing them in novel format. ("Eager to beat out his competitors, Lance
decided to reduce all prices by 5% using Global Price Change...")

As it turns out, someone actually does this. The manual for Zeus by
Impressions Games presents everything in a story format, as told by the
Greek gods that are part of the game.

I thought it was very clever and am even considering sending a fan letter to
the author.
