Paradiddle Rox 49

An interactive fiction written by Clive Fencott and programmed by Robin Fencott.

Paradiddle Rox is composed of wordsquares. The first, No. 415, was written by Clive as an entry in a competition to write a science fiction story in exactly twenty five words. Four others followed, Nos. 83, 252, 668 and 929, all with exactly 25 words. Each wordsquare is assigned a number generated randomly between 1 and 961 (31*31) at random.org.

Since then the process has developed somewhat. Instead of being restricted to 25 words, 5*5 of course, wordsquares can contain n*n words: where n is any natural (whole) number between 0 and 961, the largest square less than or equal to 999. This acts as a powerful constraint on the writing of wordsquares. You will notice that wordsquares currently contain anything from 0 to 81 words.
