Added DiffLines:

* ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'':
** ''Literature/TheForerunnerSaga'' books all have this: ''Literature/HaloCryptum'' is framed as an archived testimony of the [[{{Precursors}} Forerunner]] Bornstellar Makes Eternal Lasting. ''Literature/HaloPrimordium'' is presented as a recovered Forerunner AI recounting its past to an ONI science team. ''Literature/HaloSilentium'' is framed as a series of Forerunner logs being researched by ONI.
** ''Literature/HaloNewBlood'' opens with an "Archivist's Note" stating that the entire story is an in-universe report given by protagonist Edward Buck.


Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/HaloReach'' is a rather interesting variation on this. The Limited/Legendary Edition comes with various in-universe documents, one of which states that the game itself is an in-universe interactive record.
