The Epic was a series of maps that a specific style to them, that is, maps with natural elements to them. The map series also included a story, and for each map that was added to the series, the more the story progressed. This idea was created by Formica, and many mapmakers helped out in making it.
Formica attempted to do The Epic once, but it turned out to be a failure. A little while later, he started it up again, but with stricter rules to make things more organized. After this revival, The Epic was successful, and the creator was able to submit the final addition on the 20th of April, which added up to be a total of 51 maps.
The Epic also won the "Map Series of the Year" category for The Dronies of 2005.
