Well, Commuter can be kind of confirmed by any PR ... just not it's alignment. But confirming the role just requires targeting the Commuter and getting a failure message.
Well, that relies on a number of assumptions. You'd get the same result from tracking a ninja, for example.
Plus you seem to be assuming it's an unlimited commuter, whereas more typically we tend to see 1-shot/2-shot, where burning one use (plus a night's investigation) is somewhat counter-productive.
And unless the tracker is going to claim over it...it doesn't do you much good anyway. They pretty much have to be copped / lynched or just live with the uncertainty. The way hunter handled it generally bought him town cred (avoiding a potential mislynch) but at the cost of making the role itself basically worthless.
Oh wow, I never knew there was an Asylum 4, they really milked that franchise! Or was this an unofficial sequel?
It was completely unrelated. I hadn't actually even read the prior asylum games or looked at their setup or anything. It didn't even start out as an asylum theme, but around the concept of having a naive cop and a paranoid cop in the same setup and the story emerged from there.
