" A picaresque romp through an ordinary town gone bizarre– The Honest and Plain Village of Scio is an OSR adventure mini-setting for low level parties, levels 1-4. Inspired by weird historical primary sources, it takes the players on a journey to the f*cking absurd.
This is an adventure of precarious setups, not scenes. There is no plot, no ending or beginning. Random encounters and events make the Village feel busy and urban, faction events keep the Village from feeling static. "
