Captain Obvious: I am about to cast Captain Obvious's Magical Spell Which Is An Epic-Level Spell And Is Epic. It is an epic-level spell. To cast or create epic-level spells, one must take the Epic Spellcasting feat. I have a cape which is red and says CO on it. Now I will cast Captain Obvious's Magical Spell Which Is An Epic Level Spell And Is Epic.
Bob: Why are you telling us all this?
Captain Obvious: Because it's obvious, naturally. Captain Obvious's Magical Spell Which Is An Epic Level Spell And Is Epic!
