Is your feature request related to a problem? Please describe.
This suggestion isn't so much a major problem so much as a quality of life problem. When using Chummer to create several characters for different purposes, organizing them can be tedious at times, especially if you are using the same character as a PC i one game and an NPC in another.

Describe the solution you'd like
If we can add our own dropdown menus we can organize our characters however we want. So in addition to "Recent Characters" and "Favorite Characters" we could create separate sections for say, "My PCs" or "[Game Name] NPCs"

Describe alternatives you've considered
The only alternative that's immediately obvious to me would be adding a qualifier to their Alias, just as "Jackrabbit - PC" though this feels inelegant.

Additional context
This would also be helpful for sections like "Street Gear" so we can divide supplies. Having sections for gear we keep at the safehouse or in the car would make things more convenient.

Simplest from our side would be to allow subfolders in the watch folder to create further tabs, would that be acceptable?

I imagine subfolders would definitely work well, especially if we could name them, though as I don't know how the process works I'm not sure how well that would work.

I'll take a look at the plugin as well. I wasn't aware that was a feature of it.

EDIT: I somehow managed to overlook the "Add Location" button for things like gear and armor, which is exactly what I was looking for. If something like that could be added to the Roster it would be perfect.

Currently a character can only be part of one group in the plugin. That was a design decision, way back - but it could be changed I guess. Not sure if we should though...

@Lwmons Since I'm messing with the character roster the whole time anyway. What kind of system would you prefer? should a character show up in multiple subsections? Should the "Location" of the character in the tree be preserved if you send the file to another user (aka - should it be saved at character level in the chummerfile or should it be a setting of your locale installation)?

I'm just tossing around some ideas - no promises to actually do anything here... ;)
