    Epic that is description for something of great importance to one or usually many people. And when I say people it may also mean whole nations or countries. The Hylliad of Homer is an epic poem for instance. The feud between two nations that in the end ended with death of many and the destruction of the entire city of Illion (Troy). Epic means something extraordinary that deserves admiration, usually an act of something with grave importance.
