Roadwarden is an illustrated text-based RPG in which you explore and change a hostile, grim realm.
Places like this one are somewhat common in this fantasy realm. No village can have access to all the goods it requires to prosper, but daily travels for additional resources can turn out to be fatally dangerous. If a village has enough working power and supplies, it will sometimes start a new, small settlement focused on a specific field of work.
You can find among them mines, quarries, and brickworks, but also houses for hunters, lumberjacks, charcoal burners, or temporary shelters for workers who build bridges or roadside inns. The fishing hamlet we see here allowed the locals to fish, and to preserve their meat by curing and smoking.
