I would really like to be able to divide the characters by more than "Player characters" and "Not player characters". Maybe custom, maybe "Important characters"?
I have a hard time sorting them now when we have a lot of them
It looks like you're new here. If you want to get involved, click one of these buttons!
Off hand, I don't think it is easily done. You can use tags to help search by those tags as you get more characters.
That being said what I have seen some people do is hide the character index page completely and build a wiki page that functions like the character index page. Then they can create as many divisions as they want.
They are among us!
XCom: Defiance - Campaign of the Month November 2016
That is what we did with Rebuilt, make the character page the "Performer" page.
Just trying to help out.
I wouldn't mind seeing an additional category or two on the characters page. Maybe, "Player Characters," "Allies," "Enemies," and "Monsters?"
Nocturnum: Rebirth - Unisystem - Campaign of the Month, March 2017
Machinations of the Slave Lords - D&D 5
Really, and it might be hard to do, if one could outright "promote" tags to categories, it would be pretty cool.
Yes, it is possible to replace the character page with a wiki page, but without a huge amount of work it won't look as good as the character page, and at least personally, I like Obsidian Portal because it avoids me that kind of work usually.
I would also like that feature. My campaign has around 100 characters and it gets a little messy (and will even more as we go on).
