The River Queen is a sternwheeler paddleboat (also known as a wheelboat) owned by the Aspis Consortium and operated on the Vanji River in the Mwangi Expanse. It travels between Bloodcove and Nightfall Station at a speed of 6 mph in calm water. Going with or against the current can increase or decrease this by up to 3 mph. It is only operated during daylight, as it is dangerous to navigate the river’s tricky channels in the dark.[1]

It was built to be as light and manoeuvrable as possible, so is mostly made out of wood. It is powered by a rare and magical protean engine.[2]

The minimum crew is two—one to pilot, and one to take soundings of the river bottom—but it generally travels with a larger complement.[3]

The current captain is Kelim Esteban, a human from the Shackles.[3]

Its sister ship is the ill-fated Lady Fortune.[4]
