Now on the duplicate It might "literally" be that in terms of GURPS traits that in they replicate a person, but in an actual fight in terms of the value of an 2nd combatant on you side no it really not as simple as saying well that worth 77cp.
Agreed. but if you don't control them, is it really even worth 77exp?

Or is it a mere 20 point Ally (100%, All The Time)?

Ultimately is weird thing because in a duel context I'd argue the 77cp duplicate build is worth more than the 100cp ATR build. But obviously as you broaden out the context out things might change
You're butting into my "Reasons I Think ATR is overpriced (Or Maybe Other Things Are Underpriced)" rant... ;)

. In this setting twins are considered to be one entity for the purpose of dueling.
Well then very fight against a non- twin pair will be 2 on one.

Seems like a pretty big advantage.

Well one assumes they're working together and have trained to fight together effectively. Either Way costing it s 20pts is even cheaper in relation to teh advantage in this context!
