A silenced commuter is plausible, the host could include such a restriction for flavor reasons - after all, the concept of a commuter is that they actually, "leave town," so it would make sense for them to not be able to participate in discussion until they return.
It should be noted that while Commuter is almost exclusively a Town-aligned role, it's also pretty easy to fake-claim: It's relatively uncommon, thus unlikely to be counter-claimed, and helps a mafioso explain why they aren't nightkilled.
Yeah but commuters leave for one phase not two.
Um, what? Commuter can be 1-shot, 2-shot, all odd-number nights, all even-number nights, or anything else the Host wants.
I've just never seen them have it where they leave for more than one phase
There was much conversation over the events that took place during the day. Eventually, it was decided that the strange field spell was responsible for the actual disappearance of those who lost duels in which it was played, but even knowing that… It still didn’t provide any answers as to how to defend oneself, or even of who to trust. Who to trust…
Most everyone present knew somebody else, but after all that had happened recently, even friends were under suspicion. There was a small subgroup, however, which was confident in the innocence and trustworthiness of all its members. This group was family, after all.
Family was everything to Mihael. The family he’d finally gotten back… he would do whatever he could to keep it together. He did so by urging them to lay low, to not go out and draw attention, just as he tried to plead during the incident with Jack Atlas. It was difficult, but thus far, it had worked.
This behavior did not go unnoticed by the duel spirits. They were able to realize that things would be easier if they could break this family apart, as it would be even more of the group who was left in the dark over who to trust. Chaos would only aid their cause, apprehension ripping the duelists apart. On this note, they informed their proxies of the situation, and of their next assignment.
Night was the most worrying time for everyone. It was when Judai and Taro had disappeared, and that fear was never far from the duelists’ minds. Even during this time in rest, the Arclights remained close to each other.
In the thick of the night, a figure appeared before the slumbering four. The one beside the pink-haired boy was a huge threat after what happened with Jack, and the shadowed figure extended a hand to forcibly bring the cyan-clad child with him. In doing so, however, he brushed up against Mihael, waking him up.
“Mmm…what’s going… on…?” he muttered quietly.
Change of plans.
Speaking lowly, the shadow replied, “Come with me quietly if you don’t want anything to happen to the others here.”
At the mention of his family’s safety, Mihael quickly snapped into a working mindset. He carefully rose from the ground, needing no time to make a decision. Nodding shakily, he left with the mysterious accoster. As he did so, there was a rustling of movement behind him, inaudible to either of those leaving.
Within only a few turns of the duel that began outside, Mihael’s opponent had drawn and played his field spell. Now, it was clear that one of the two would not make it out of this match.
Mihael had to win. He knew he must, for everyone’s sake… Machu Mach and his various OOParts monster put up a valiant effort, but his opponent had many strange cards. Cards that he was unable to overpower. Despite holding out for several turns, his power was exhausted, his life points drained completely.
As the boy in red fell to the ground, he heard footsteps rapidly approaching from behind. Soon enough, his father and brothers were in his line of vision as it began to blur.
Were they calling out for him? He thought that must be the case as he saw them frantically running to him, lips moving in unison, seemingly yelling out “Mihael.” By the time they reached him, he had all but faded away. As Mihael reached out for his father’s hand, he vanished from the world completely.
“Tou-sama… Thomas nii-sama… Chris nii-sama… I’m sorry.”
Akuraito, you are...
III / Mihael Arclight - Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL
The youngest member of the Arclight family, you are a gentle duelist who wants nothing more than for your family to smile once more. To achieve that goal, you follow all of Tron’s orders, even putting your own safety at risk for the sake of the mission. After losing to Yuma, you entrusted him with your feelings and with the task of saving your father. You duel using an OOParts deck, which contains the precious card your father gave to you as a child.
Because you easily feel compassion for others, you are a doctor. Every night phase, you can protect a player from being night-killed, including yourself. Send a PM with the title “Night X Protect – USER” during the night phase.
Any votes you cast toward a member of the Arclight family (regardless of alignment) will not count.
You are allied with TOWN. You win when all mafia members have been eliminated.
Good luck, and have fun!
Akuraito was night-killed. She was III/Mihael Arclight, allied with TOWN.
It would be a harsh, long night. The remaining Arclights did not leave the spot where Mihael had vanished, but those back at the shelter would awaken to find another note:
"Even with my absence, I can still be found.
I'll end my turn, but get your game on.
For one of you is tricking the other...
better play your trap card, it might be your only use."
It is now DAY 5. This phase will end on November 11th, at 10:00 PM EST. You may now vote.
Since I've only seen about one second of III action in the show so far, I don't care. What I am upset about is that we've lost the doctor. Is there a chance that there will be more than one doctor in the game? I'm guessing from the discussion on having more than one cop earlier that having more than one person of each role is rare in the smaller games. (There were two cops in Human's last game. I was one of them but I died very quickly.)
