''Standard Action'' is a WebOriginal that follows the exploits of a team of low-level [[AnAdventurerIsYou adventurers]], living in a ''DungeonsAndDragons''-esque world. Wendy the sorceress, and Fernando the bard are down on their luck with no money, shoddy equipment and two other party members captured by hobgoblins. Left with no other options, they seek to recruit a [[AnAdventurerIsYou healer and meat shield]] to fill out their party and rescue their companions, Astrid the ranger and Torval the cleric, before the hobgoblins finish them off. Having no money, they instead end up with Martin the druid, and Edda the elf barbarian. However, not all is as it seems up in the mountains, and the party finds itself drawn into something much greater than any of them expected.

The series currently has two seasons with a third on the way, after a successful Kickstarter campaign.

The show's Web site is [[http://watchstandardaction.com/ here]] and has a Website/YouTube channel [[http://www.youtube.com/user/Phasefirefilms here]].

!!This work includes examples of:
* AbhorrentAdmirer: The hobgoblin guard, to Fernando. Whether she was also abhorrent to [[spoiler: Fernando's father]] is a matter of speculation, [[spoiler: although the fact that he never talked about how he escaped from that dungeon is probably significant]].
* ActionGirl: Edda, who is an elf barbarian.
* AHeroToHisHometown: The Hobgoblin Champion. [[spoiler: The villain plans to use this fact to unite the hobgoblins and get them to follow him.]]
* AnachronismStew: Martin's shoes are clearly a pair of Converse.
* AnnoyingYoungerSibling: Though [[LikeBrotherAndSister they aren't related]], Fernando occasionally fills this role, opposite Wendy's [[AloofBigBrother Aloof Big Sister]] role.
* BigBad: [[spoiler: Torval.]] However, there are hints that there is a BiggerBad.
* BiTheWay: Or as Edda prefers to say, "I don't like to label myself."
* TheBrute: The hobgoblins have a half-ogre on their side.
* CantArgueWithElves: Astrid lives this trope. (Edda, however, doesn't.)
* ConsummateLiar: Fernando, once he gets access to a Potion of Glibness.
* CreateYourOwnVillain: Torval tells Wendy that this happened to the hobgoblins. [[spoiler: It's not clear to what degree he's correct, believes he is correct, or is just trying to manipulate her into joining him.]]
* {{Determinator}}: Martin won't give up on his fight with [[spoiler: Torval]], even when he's clearly outmatched.
* TheDragon: The Hobgoblin Champion.
* EnemyMime: Martin is briefly possessed by the glasses of an undead mime.
* EvilGloating: [[spoiler: Torval]] has a monologue all written up, but the heroes keep interrupting him.
* FaceHeelTurn: [[spoiler: Torval.]]
* FearlessFool: Fernando.
* GenreSavvy: Edda might not be that smart, but she's over 400 years old and knows a thing or two about adventuring.
* HalfHumanHybrid: Fernando is half-halfling.
* IdiotHero: Edda.
* IntrepidMerchant: Mortimer the Magnificent.
* LikeBrotherAndSister: Wendy and Fernando. They've been adventuring together since graduation and have been through a lot together. When the party was reunited after being separated, Fernando has absolutely no compunctions about bear-hugging Wendy, and when one of them is depressed or doubting themselves, the other is always the first to comfort them.
* LoyalAnimalCompanion: Martin's animal companion, Snuffles the badger.
** Subverted in one episode, where Snuffles had gone off to hang out with Edda, and Martin couldn't find him.
* MagicalGirl: Wendy.
* [[MySpeciesDothProtestTooMuch My Class Doth Protest Too Much]]: Martin is a druid who hates the forest, is allergic to trees and prefers to prepare fire spells over healing ones, claiming he's not a healer.
* NaiveNewcomer: Because he's new to the whole adventuring gig, Fernando's head is filled with stories of great heroes and epic battles.
* NeatFreak: Wendy, who spends most of her daily allotment of magic on cleaning her clothing.
** Martin as well. He laments loosing his hand sanitizer after being chased by halfling bandits.
* NightmareFace: If you've seen episode 7, you know ''exactly'' what this refers to. And likely [[NightmareFuel lost some sleep over it]].
* {{Pyromaniac}}: Martin sure loves his fire spells.
* ReferenceOverdosed: More like borderline overdosed, but it's not particularly subtle:
** [[{{Abba}} Fernando]] [[ThePrincessBride Inigo]] [[Film/{{Spaceballs}} Vespa]] of the [[{{Hobbits}} Hairy Feet]]
** The Poetic [[NorseMythology Edda]] is the source of most Norse myth, the Norse being famous for their [[BarbarianHero Barbarian]] warriors.
** Mortimer sells a [[RingOfPower gold ring]] that, when worn, causes a [[TheLordOfTheRings powerful undead creature]] from the [[{{Mordor}} eastern wastes]] to know the wearer's exact location.
* RetiredBadass: The owner of the Lonely Dragon Inn.
* SpoonyBard: Fernando, who plays "inspirational" battle ballads on his... ukelele.
* TallDarkAndSnarky: Wendy and Martin. Just about any time they appear together, they seem to be involved in some sort of unspoken snarking contest.
* UnstoppableRage: Edda, being a barbarian, has access to the Rage ability and becomes scarily good at combat when she's mad. Of course, once it wears off, she [[MoodWhiplash faints due to Rage Fatigue]].
* WizardingSchool: Wendy went to Sorcery School; Fernando went to Bard School.
