Tinkz tries to sleep but the cold, the silence, oh that foreboding, deafening silence. She twists and turns fitfully, tucking her legs and arms inside her robe hoping to conserve the warmth of her body. She thinks she must look a bit like a large spider curled up in the dark stone corner. It has been days since her captors have questioned her. For the most part, they have not been cruel, just, perhaps, neglectful and Tinkz is made aware of the fact as her stomach adds the only sounds in her "world". She grins slightly as she thinks, maybe she could eat a spider about now... no, most likely not, more likely try to tame it as a companion. She fondly thinks of Sigi, her sigil colored bunny and frequent companion on less serious trips to the Shadowlords crypts and she thinks of Nonel, Michel, Pepe, LLama, Lore and all the True Britannians. She has not lost faith in them, but the enemy is strong and numbers are growing; she now has moments of concern. The ransom they ask is considerable. She knows the True Britannians dare not part with that much silver, not if they intend to be able to hire guards and wage a war so her only hope is rescue. The Minocian Partisan Resistance are talented trackers, stealthers and thieves. If there is anyway for her to be found, they will do it. Tinkz catches her breath and pulls into a smaller ball as her world is invaded by footsteps.... Yes, the time is growing closer ... Tinkz must be rescued soon! What will happen if she isn't? The Shadowlords have sentenced her to death and there is a real world consequence to this story. Let's hope Tinkz is recued so we do not have to find out what that consequence might be. Please read the next Focus on Factions interview that will post today! There will be additional story detail as lead-in to the interview.
