Mini Epic Update

Epic is epic. Update over. Kidding.

semi-overcast 75 °F

Holy cow and sweet, sweet nerdery. Sander and I get to Epic around 7:30. The campus is surrounded by farmland, and there is even an Epic Farm, which is some combination of buildings that resemble a traditional farm but are offices and buildings that are actually a functional farm. I saw a herd of cows on the farm portion of campus. As general theme, space, particularly interstellar/galaxy type space presides. Each building is themed differently and rather punny-ly. There's a Wild West Building, and Dungeons and Dragons building, and lots of really excellent art that evidently the Epic workers get to select from the annual art fair (That was yesterday, that Shari and I missed.) So there was art being unpacked in one of the hallways.

Reading with the Cat in the Hat

Reading with the Cat in the Hat

I had to keep myself from describing things as epic as we walked through the buildings and tunnels, because that is what they want. They want you to make a painful amount of puns. and I'm not sorry for a single one. The Epic meeting room, Deep Space, seats the entire company, nearly 8,000 people. Deep Space's top level is Sky and then descends five levels until we get to Magma, where the floor is magma. (Not really. I mean, I wasn't burnt to a crisp and am still alive to write this. I am not a robot.) The conference room/amphitheater is huge, and the tops sections are divided by dragon and the bottom sections are divided by members of the Fellowship of the Ring. The various classrooms are themed by pairs. For instance, the Star Wars classrooms are Jedi and Droids. Room 2007 is the James Bond '007 rooms. There was a Camelot room. There are suits of armor and statues of pterodactyls.

So, basically, if you're nerdy, any type of nerdy, working for Epic is a pretty sweet gig. Or visiting Epic is a pretty cool thing to do, too. Evidently they give guided tours, but we're too cool for that. (That is a lie. I'm not too cool for anything.)
