The real treasure however was seeing the super talented and oscar-winning actor from El Paso, F. Murray Abraham, playing an aged science fiction writer who also serves as the head game writer for Mythic Quest studios, C.W. Longbottom. C.W. is a lovely eccentric man, who is not what most people would consider "politically correct" in today's age. But with his stentorian voice and Shakespeare-like delivery, CW imbues the Mythic Quest game with pulpy storylines.
