Venture-Lieutenant, Washington—Seattle aka Gwen Smith

I'm collecting a list of PFS scenarios that feature strong female NPCs outside the venture captains. What are your favorites?


Cyphermage Dilemna

Spoiler:
The BBEG is a pretty scary female Vishkanya Magus and the peg-legged female dwarf ex-captain can be played to great effect as well as a PC ally.

Grand Lodge

Anything featuring Miss Feathers*

*:
(City of Strangers 1 and 2, Feast of Sigils), assuming your GM is mature enough to roleplay the situation well and not treat her like a sideshow freak.
Of course, she isnt technically female, so I dont know if she is what you are looking for. :/

IIRC, Perils of the Pirate Pact and Quest for Perfection: Part II also have

Spoiler:
female pirate captains as the BBEG.

The Blakros Matrimony is jam-packed with powerful female NPCs.

Grand Lodge

Fortress of the Nail has some powerful female NPCs as well, I think.

I'm not spoilering this, because I'm sticking with NPC's -- not villains -- and giving no specifics:

The Blakros women are certainly strong females:

• Voice in the Void
• Penumbral Accord
• Blakros Matrimony

Then there are the Foxglove sisters:

• The Golden Serpent
• The Green Market

The Thuvian NPC from The Immortal Conundrum (I can't remember her name) was pretty strong.

Lady Darchana of House Madinani is a cast member of the Hellknight's Feast. She is one of the 12 councilors of Absalom and the archdean of the Arcanamirium.

However, there aren't a lot of scenarios with strong female -- or male -- NPC's who aren't Venture Captains or villains. If looking for villains, let us know.

Perrsonally I think Penumbral Accords would be a bad one for this sort of thing. It's almost your generic 'damsel in distress' sort of situation. :/

Seconded.

That said ...

Red Harvest (if you don't mind if they're not human)
The First Devil We Know (if you play the female villain right)
Shades of Ice 1 (I think? It's been a while)
QfP3 (depending on your definition)
Sewer Dragons of Absalom (though again, not human)
Dawn of the Scarlet Sun (... kiiiinda)

If you wanted to offer the sanctioned part of Rise of the Runelords: Burnt Offerings, you could potentially play up the character of Shelalu Andosana from that book. She's a B-A elf ranger.

Not from Hamaria Blakros' perspective. She's taking a stand and opting to break an ancient pact. She was the strong female NPC I was thinking of.


The Infernal Vault

Spoiler:
Bad girl end NPC, doesnt talk or interact much

God's Market Gamble
Spoiler:
Sinister but strong female BBEG

Before the Dawn pt1
Spoiler:
Most NPCs are female, BBEG, lieutenant, trade house spokesperson

Before the Dawn pt2
Spoiler:
Camp led by female archeologist. Can have a lot of fun with this one

Shadows Last Stand pt2
Spoiler:
Recurring and sinister BBEG

Rise of the Goblin Guild
Spoiler:
Not the strongest per se but you have a female goblin NPC through it that you can play up

Reign of Winter AP Book 2
Spoiler:
Lots here. Matriarchal society, female BBEG, female resistance leader and her girlfriend

Silver Crusade

My top choices if you're looking for female role models for young girls:


  • Siege of the Diamond City -
    Spoiler:
    The new season 5 special features an appearance by the Queen of Mendev herself.

  • Murder on the Silken Caravan - Definitely fits the theme
  • The Pallid Plague - Kind of a cliche role for a woman, but it works.

Other interesting choices:


  • Sewer Dragons of Absalom - As mentioned above, this one's not a race you'd expect.
  • Severing Ties - Maybe not exactly the role model you'd hope for, but definitely strong and female.
  • The Disappeared - Both strong and weak NPCs of both genders all over the place in this one.
  • The Night March of Kalkamedes -
    Spoiler:
    Kinda ify as to whether she qualifies as strong, given her "damsel in distress" role, though she's powerful once freed.

Strong female villains:


  • The Devil We Know, part 1. She's a potential TPK at tier 1-2. This was definitely a case of one tier not being scaled properly compared to the others.
  • Echoes of the Overwatched
  • The Icebound Outpost
  • Rats of Round Mountain, both parts 1 and 2, actually.

5/5 Venture-Lieutenant, Georgia—Atlanta aka Yiroep

If you want a module, Murder's Mark has sooo many female NPCs in it. Like, seriously, almost all NPCs interacted with in that module are female.

Dark Archive

Murder on the Throaty Mermaid - It's a stretch here, but the female dwarf cook has been one of my favorite NPCs to roleplay in a long time.

5/5 ⦵⦵⦵

Veterans vault. (both the NPC whose vault you're going for and the otyugh.)

Thanks for the suggestions, everyone! Female villains are certainly workable.
