The Master Storytellers

Fresco Room:
Along the north and east walls are large frescoes, starting in the northwest and proceeding to the right. The first painting is a group portrait. The rest of the paintings depict the migration of the Implementors after the closure of the Castle of CambridgePark Drive.

The group portrait of the Implementors recounts their exploits at Infocom, and appears to have been copied from the Unofficial Infocom Home Page's author's list.
