L'esprit d'escalier Optional Rule for Runequest

At the end of a scene or encounter, you may spend one Hero Point (or Fate Point, in Hawkmoon) to retroactively have your character say or do something during that scene - a particularly cutting insult, picking up an item and so forth. Your change cannot affect the overall outcome of the scene.

(It's comparatively rare for players in my games to pick up on the power of Adventure-style dramatic editing in systems which offer it. I'm wondering if having a definite time when it is ok to alter in-game events would help.)
