Today’s Indie Comic of the Day is Dedren Snead’s TurnKey.
TurnKey is a Dungeons and Dragons inspired tale that tells the story of a human ranger named Darrus who has been found guilty of treason by the prince of the 5 Ring Kingdoms. His sentence is to become the Turnkey, a jailer of the kingdom’s infamous mystical dungeon called The Mount.
However, his sentence might actually be a blessing. The world is on the brink of a Great War and Darrus’ position will become both political and strategic. The key to the High Crown may just be hidden down below the depths of the dungeons and deep within its prison walls.
Joining Darrus in this tale will be the Orc Monk known as Free.
The story also features Oram, a human mage.
There is also Sephyra a nymph druid.
And finally the human fighter Vdova.
