I'm disallowing "jinxed" for any campaign of mine, and I think most other GMs would as well. First off, you'd be getting twenty points back for a disadvantage nobody can know about which is fine. That happens all the time, and if that alone were a problem no one could take Unknown Enemy. The real issue with it is that jinxed only applies on die rolls players don't make themselves because the GM is supposed to hide the fact that they take penalties every time Yuri is nearby.

This is obnoxious to a GM. It is obnoxious to a GM because I either have to make all of everyone's rolls for them (which is something I don't want to bother with) to make sure the penalty applies, or the penalty basically never applies and you've gotten 20 points for your character for nothing.

Also, I understand that we really need to do an actual setting writeup for MAC. As it stands, everybody who's been playing it so far has been playing it from the start, and that means we haven't really needed to explain things to new people.

However, since auracore symbiotes are not sentient (whether they think they are or not), one thing that may help you stick with your original concept for Yuri is a little bit of fiddling with his delusions. First off, the Mechwarrior thing is a -5 or even -1 delusion. As far as I'm concerned he could be from a clan with such strict codes of honor (he wouldn't be the first) and nobody'd be the wiser.

Plenty of people develop DID without contact with another invading sentient entity. It's entirely possible that his mind just couldn't handle the act of synching with a symbiote. Once he did, it fucked him up and now he's absolutely and totally certain that symbiote is a thinking and autonomous living thing, whether it actually is or not. You could trade off the other delusion downgrade by giving him a -5 or -10 delusion that his mecha's auracore is sentient.

"Distribution of earned character points between the personalities is up to the GM."

I don't actually care if both personalities have the same number of points. Some GM might, but right now it's not sticking out as a pressing issue to me.
