Suggested By
A work lightly kissed by the original may credit it as "suggested by." This adaptation credit is used for Derivative Works which depart massively from the original.

Just to be clear, this page is only for works that outright state they have been "suggested by" some earlier work, or have explicit Word of God saying so.

Compare Inspired By. Arguably a sort of lampshaded In Name Only, for better or worse.

  • Sergey Lukyanenko's novel Line of Delirium uses race and planet names from the game Master of Orion, but this has absolutely no bearing on the storyline. In fact, the author takes plenty of liberties with the racial descriptions and changes the nature of some outright (the Darlock turns out to be not shapeshifters but snake-like symbiotes, and the Mrrshan are foxes not Cat Folk). The first book doesn't even bother giving a nod to the game. The sequel, Emperors of Illisons has a small blurb at the end to that effect. Really, the author could've easily changed the race and planet names in the final draft, and the novel would lose absolutely nothing.
    • Additionally, the Meklar (of planet Meklon) are simply called Meklons.
