I think you can guess where I'm heading.

I was starting to think that, too, but mostly because Mandle keeps referring to the betrayer as him/her/it, and I wouldn't put it past him to have sneakily given us the answer all along. ;)

"Perhaps not quite as slow as you expected, but yes, extremely painful!", The Lurker replies and everyone hears them yank down some kind of large and rusty metal lever with a teeth-grinding SCCCRRRRREEEEEEECCHHHH  from somewhere behind the row in which they sit imprisoned.

The smell of ozone is faint at first but then quickly increases until:

Add spoiler tag for NSFW:
ELECTRICAL ARCS ZAP THROUGH THE AIR AROUND CASSIEBSG'S SEAT

ZZZZZZAAAAAAAAAPPP! ZAP! ZAAAAAAAP! ZAP-ZAP! ZAAAAAAP! ZAPPITY-ZAP-ZAP!
                                                                                                   BZZZZZZZ! BZZZZT! CRACKLE! SIZZLE! FFFFFFFFZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzz... splutter...

What is left of Cassiebsg now sits burnt to a crisp with wafts of pork-BBQ-smelling smoke drifting up from it through the flickering light of the projector.

You can hear the sly grin in their voice as The Lurker says "Quite the shame... She was such a bright spark..."

I'll update in about 12 hours or so as long as there's at least 2 sets of questions by then.

Oh no, Cassie! 8-0 I feel like that was my fault for mentioning my theory. :(

Can the betrayer be summoned by some kind of ritual?

The Lurker darts to and fro behind you all, ducking their head forward between people now and then for long enough to read the frozen stares on their faces, but never for quite long enough for anyone to get a decent look at them.

The Lurker says "Well, as it seems you all might be in shock over recent developments, I'll just give everyone a little more time to collect their thoughts..."

(Update delayed for about 12 more hours)

"Oh nooo! Cassieeeee ...!!"

*Tabby whispering towards the neighbors*
I am really confused about what answers are lies.
A parasite that wears clothes?
It's from another dimension but no ghost, daemon, spirit or alien but with a real  body?
That leaves animals and if I don't want to follow in the direction to scifi movies (Tribbles come to mind (laugh) ) but towards horor genre I am getting lost because most of those parasites are from earth or aliens ... *sigh*

Also my level of knowledge about the language doesn't make it easier for me to come up with something helpful, sorry. :-[
Is it correct that we are allowed to repeat a question (in a new round) ... aaand that a question won't get a wrong answer twice?
In that case I'd like to try clearing things a bit by this now:


Does the betrayer wear clothes?
Does the parasite eat a particular body substance?
Is the betrayer from an other dimension?

So, instead of doubling/tripling up on questions that are exactly or basically the same I have added a x2 after questions that have been asked twice and the answer remained the same.

If an answer changes on any questions then that question will appear on both lists.

So far this has not happened.

   gaah - now  I am soo stuck, still
hmm - which way to go on now  - since an animal won't wear clothes  (wtf)
*grmbl* where is that lie hidden *grmbl* 
but wait - nevertheless it might be an alien or daemon (that would fit so nicely to be a parasite) (nod) 
... so I need to follow the road a bit more to clear things up:
                                         
(maybe we are really looking for a brain eater or a species that needs humans for placing and feeding their offspring)


Is the betrayer extra-terrestrial?
Is the betrayer some kind of ghost or spirit?
Does the betrayer need the human body for reproduction?

Is the betrayer evil?
Or
Is the betrayer just misunderstood?
Is the betrayer summoned via some ritual?

I feel this is basically impossible though. Any answer could be fake so it's basically a guessing game.

The Lurker glares at Snarky and says "Watch yourself there young man! Seeing as this is the first time you've spoken up I'll give you a break. Maybe you missed the rule about only asking questions based on horror movie tropes, even if only loosely."
