I keep getting people asking me if Mekton Zero means I’m throwing out Mekton Zeta and Zeta Plus. Which, to my mind is like saying, “Since you’re planning to add dessert to the menu, does this mean you’re going to give up eating anything else?”
So let’s get things clear from the start—Mekton Zero isn’t going to replace Mekton Zeta and Zeta Plus. It’s actually meant to enhance them. See, M-Zeta and Zeta+ are great construction systems. You can build freaking anything with them—I have seen hardcore gearheads make toasters with the system just to prove it’s possible. If the parts aren’t there in Zeta, you can even use Zeta+ to MAKE the parts you’ll need in Zeta. So it’s incredibly cool and flexible.
What it isn’t is roleplaying friendly.
