Altering the Characters Page

I'm really enjoying OP, and the players have found it a valuable addition to our game.

However I have had one recurring comment. As NPCs die, I tag them "Deceased" -- but short of tagging all the not-dead people "Living" they eventually clutter up the remaining NPC listing.

Is there any way to separate the Characters page with additional divisions, like the PCs/NPCs/GM Only divisions that currently exist?

    The character list sorts alphabetically, so if you add a "ZZ" to the beginning of deceased characters' names, they will all be placed as a group at the bottom of the list.

    This of course assumes you don't have characters with names starting with ZZ in which case you'll need to use the prefix ZZZ, unless of course you have characters whose names start with ZZZ...

    Well, since my game is about the ZZZZebulons vs the ZZZZtar Rangers, I may need to use ZZZZZ!

    Thanks for the solution, much appreciated.

    Another solution is to move your characters to the wiki- myself and others have done this.

    one campaign I saw put a red "X" over the image for deceased characters, that seemed to work really well to quickly differentiate living from dead

    I put a skull and crossbones over mine. :)
