One Thing: Church of the Wicked Generation

"Church of the Wicked Generation" by Eric Potter

One thing I love about this OPD is it is all about "shades of gray". The "evil cleric" and his child minions looted and pillaged a countryside already ravaged by a plague. The surrounding hamlets retaliated by boarding up the church and burning everyone inside alive hoping to loot the treasury once the embers cooled. The player characters enter the ruins of the church presumably looking to discover and loot the lost treasury for themselves. Despite all the moral ambiguity surrounding the set up, the main villain proves to be quite the bastard, and any party could feel good about putting him to the sword, or the axe, or the lightning bolt spell...

Get it here.
