Skeleton Frame is a collaborative map drawing game for 2 - 6 players. Players work together to create the history of an ancient mechanized weapon of war and use this history to paint a map of the world that was shaped by the war. 

You are a group of young people who have found the dilapidated frame of a Mobile Armor, a giant humanoid weapon utilized in a brutal war fought long ago. The war shaped the world around you, but the members of your group are too young to remember the conflict itself. In excavating and reconstructing the Armor you piece together history and better understand how the world as you know it came to be, but at the same time you will also shape the future. Finding the Frame has brought the legacy of war back into the world, and it will be up to you to decide what will happen to the Frame.

Skeleton Frame was designed for the RPG LATAM JAM and is a hack of Skeleton Parts by Lucas Rollim.

Skeleton Frame is a short map-drawing mecha rpg inspired by Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans.

It's 5 pages, with easy to read text and a clean, stylish layout.

Gameplay-wise, you respond to prompts about the titular skeleton frame, defining facts about its propulsion, weapons, etc. For each fact you define, you plot a coordinate on a map, relating the location to the fact.

It's not explicit in the book, but I think this game works very well if all of your coordinates are related to the mech's last mission, and your coordinates are things like "here is where the drives failed under a hail of bullets."

Overall, this is a neat, short storytelling game that's perfect as an icebreaker. If you like mecha stories and you want to cut right to the meat of one in thirty minutes or less, I'd strongly recommend giving this a try.
