Debt and Metal is a collaborative storytelling game about a group of aces—skilled mercenaries who pilot giant robots, or frames—taking on a galaxy that doesn’t care about them. It requires one game master to moderate the game and portray the dangers of the galaxy and one or more players to portray the aces.
Based on Trophy Gold, the game uses a lightweight framework for stories of mercenaries taking on harrowing missions in order to pursue their drive.

Use rollable tables or your own choices to design an ace who specializes in gambits: maneuvers that set you apart from the average frame pilot employed in militaries and corporations’ private security teams.

Hey, rad RPG!  I'm excited to try it.  Any chance of a printer-friendly version?

ah you weren’t supposed to ask yet! It is coming, but, unfortunately, I’m having a software problem and can’t export a new version. Hold tight! It’s coming ASAP.

Awesome!  Thanks for the quick response.  Looking forward to printing a copy for the table.
