Black Queen from the Foundation d20 RPG

Black Queen

(Foundation RPG)


Circa 2000 there was a big wave of tabletop RPGs based on the d20 system. The Foundation was an early one, and a super-hero-themed one. Back then I was getting every super-hero RPG, so I’ve got a copy.

It’s a terrible game and at best a footnote in RPG history. I converted a few of the more generic characters for reasons that now elude me. One of these was a large-breasted supermodel in lingerie with a sword, because what were you *expecting* ?


  • Real Name: Cassandra Grafter.
  • Marital Status: Unrevealed.
  • Known Relatives: None.
  • Group Affiliation: Shadow Empire.
  • Base Of Operations: Mobile.
  • Height: 5’10” Weight: 130lbs. Age: 27
  • Eyes: Blue Hair: Chestnut brown


Powers and Abilities

The Black Queen is a very proficient street fighter and sword fighter. She uses a magical blade that can shoot black force blasts or erect a magical protective screen around her.


Cassandra Grafter claims not to remember her life before she gained the blade. The Black King found her working as a secretive assassin, using the powers of her sword to kill. He was very attracted toward her, and promised her power and wealth to work for him. She accepted, and never regretted her choice.

During her operations against the superhero group the Guardians, she became attracted to its leader Mindstar. But she’s focused that into a greater desire to defeat the Guardians, rather than trying to save him from the others.

Neutral Evil, apparently.

DC Universe History

The Shadow Empire is your basic conspiracy with operatives themed after chess pieces. It is probably better to take its members and turn them into henchmen for whatever typical conspiracy you use in your campaign.
