Disaster strikes the MAINFRAME in this mini-zine! The textures, bitmaps, and renders of everything within the MAINFRAME have been corrupted! Luckily, a plucky anti-virus process Mac has a tip - there are two corruption viruses behind it, and their currently at the Big Byte Cafe! Help him root out who is behind this disaster and restore the graphics of the MAINFRAME !

THE MAINFRAME is a series of mini-zines for the Troika! TTRPG detailing the locales and creatures of this virtual realm. THE MAINFRAME is born out of a love for all things computer, as well as scifi stories like TRON and ReBoot. 

Edition 0x04 was made for the MS Paint RPG Jam! and created entirely within MS Paint. This mini-zine consists of two pages: print them off front to back to have the secrets of each encounter within the inside of the book, so you can unfold the mini-zine to find the secrets of each character within the Big Byte Cafe! Or just print them out separately for two mini-zines! There's no rules!

Create characters for MAINFRAME with Edition 0x00, and find out more of the world of MAINFRAME in Editions 0x01, 0x02, and 0x03!
