In Standard Hero Behavior by John David Anderson feature two desperate young men searching for a living in the town of Darlington. Mason is a teenaged bard, the son of a hero who set off on a quest years ago and never returned. Mason is poor and desperate since he can not write about real heroes and earn money like his dad. Cowel, who is like Mason, sells plumes, the feather-like decorations on the helmets, to people who don’t even have helmets. The town used to be peaceful when the heroes protected the town’s people from orgs and goblins. Ever since Darlington, a rich duke who uses money to buy off the beasts instead of fighting them, took over the town, the heroes have slowly moved out of the once good town. Now that Darlington’s money has finally run out, Bennie the Ore is threatening destruction of the town. Now the only way to save the town is by asking heroes to come to Darlington to save everyone from the attacks by the ogres. Along the way they encounter a man who swordfights in his sleep, a cross-dressing bully, vicious pixies, a pretty young witch, horrible whatisits, and more colorful characters as they hunt for help and ponder the real nature of heroism. Can the two friends save the town in time and will they find the truth inside them? Read the book to find out.I think this is a pretty good book. Everything could be expected easily like in the fairy tale. Read this book if you want to see the adventures of these town young folks trying to become heroes.In the town of Darlington, formerly known as Highsmith, lived two desperate young men searching for a living.
