Raging Swan Press (now THAT'S a company name) has released a mini-campaign setting called The Lonely Coast for free. Its about 30 pages long and made for the Pathfinder RPG, but as we all know the easiest thing to convert from one rules set to another is a campaign setting (at least ones that don't include lots of optional rules). As such, you could easily convert this to any Old School game on the fly.
The setting details a small area that can fit into just about any campaign world. It's designed to fit on the outskirts of a kingdom, and doesn't cover a huge area, so it shouldn't disrupt much if you drop it into a world you already plan to use.
Five wandering encounters are included to help the DM hit the ground rolling.
You can grab The Lonely Coast here and visit the Raging Swan Press' website here.
Raging Swan has also released an adventure named Retribution for 1st level PCs, that can be used with The Lonely Coast or not. It's also for Pathfinder and would required some conversion to use it with other rule sets. I'll give my thoughts on it when I finish reading it.
