adjective. Totally cool.
It used to refer to a very specific type of poem, like The Iliad or The Odyssey. Then came the movie version of Lord of the Rings, arguably an epic itself. The movie's popularity introduced the word to the ignorant public. Soon hack video game "journalists" were using the term as a synonym for "fantasy," which did not help preserve the original definition. After years of corruption, the word is now an even more annoying synonym for "totally cool, dude!"
