Cross-tag notes:
* Class-based: would imply there are classes, but the protagonist already has one defined, you likely get other characters to join you who represent the other classes.

General notes:
* Does not prevent protagonist naming, which actually often goes unreferred, only being used for the game saves or player profile.

Limitations:
* ONLY for role-playing games, as for others we can assume this is always true.
