"Lost Classes - Warrior Queen" presents a 10-level prestige class instantly usable in your Dungeons & Dragons game. Presented by Louis Porter, Jr., Design and written by Richard Farrese, this supplement is easy to use and read, wasting little time and space in presenting this prestige class (which is good since one-and-a-half of its four pages are devoted to the Open Game License).
This is a clean product; the written description of this prestige class is economical and to the point. There is no doubt as to what type of character might take levels in this prestige class. While the requirements for this prestige class are definitely based on a character having certain stats and skill ranks (a base attack bonus of +8, 8 ranks in Diplomacy or Intimidation, and a selection of feats) the character's backgrounds, beliefs and tendencies are taken into consideration by writer Farrese in describing who might become a warrior queen.
The class (rightly) is given a d12 as her hit die, and the base attack bonus increases +1 per level. The class abilities are unique enough to make the class stand apart from other fighter-based or -intended prestige classes. Among them, a character can enjoy a Defensive Stance (which grants a +2 deflection bonus to AC), Reputation (which grants +1 bonus per warrior queen level to either Intimidate or Diplomacy, depending on the character?s alignment), and Power of Steel (+2 competence bonus to melee weapons with which the character is proficient), and these are only the 1st and 2nd level of the class. Later levels enjoy a bonus to Leadership (Leadership Bonus at 6th level), the ability to ignore speed reduction inflicted by medium or heavy armor (Speed of Warfare, also at 6th level), and a +2 morale bonus to the warrior queen?s allies within 10 feet (Resolve of Eagles at 9th level).
Jason Walton provides the one piece of artwork in the supplement, and it depicts the class as a stern warrior-woman, confident and ready to prove her worth.
