I must admit, I'm a dork, I love fantasy novels. I've noticed that quite a few seem to follow a basic recipe though.

Ingredients:

1 young, preferably male hero. Naive, underdog type, usually a "country boy" with less than grand expectations

1 stunning female, seemingly well out of hero's reach. Royalty or upper society.

1 race of barbarians, enemies at first, allies at end.

1 magical sword

1 sidekick who is goofy, crass or otherwise opposite to the main character.

1-4 medieval settings

Many seemingly unconnected enemies all eventually leading to 1 main evil of all evil foes, to taste.

Ok, take 1 Hero, marinate on farm in quaint back country setting, preferably a valley or a dell, for about 14 - 16 years. Remove suddenly and drop into boiling pot of mysterious danger, add sidekick at this time.
Boil rapidly for up to 1 week. Add dash of unexpected abilities. Simmer for up to 1 week. Drop in 1 fair maiden. Bring to medium heat for 1-2 weeks. Add splash of imminent doom and boil rapidly again.

Drop in magical sword, plus some self-doubt and stir briskly. Simmer for a few days. Drop pile of unexpected abilities and bizarre mastering of sword. Dump in more imminent doom plus lackeys and an evil army, boil rapidly for 1 -2 months.

Once fully mixed, add one Undefeatable Nemesis and crush with sword and hero, leaving a peaceful mash and a happy ever after with the fair maiden.
