So this is a pseudo-sequel to Paradise Lost and not a video game adaptation, correct? Shouldn't you give it a name that reflects that, like Paradise Lost: The Losing of Paradise?
I contemplated this for a few months, and it's the only reason I did not create the thread earlier. The reality is, this game will essentially be about the events of Paradise Lost
vicariously through a series of non-chronological fragments. It is
Paradise Lost. Or at least, Paradise Lost
is in here.
There is already a "sequel" to Paradise Lost
by Milton himself entitled, Paradise Regained
, which was never as popular. (It deals with the temptation of Christ).
I eventually decided not to add a subtitle to the game because the title of the epic itself is already so powerful, anything else would just detract from it. Fortunately for me, the statue of limitations ran out a few hundreds of years ago. Everything that I add to the book will be for the sole purpose of trying to excuse the format of the project as an RPG, but it does not add up to anything substantial beyond the text itself.
So consider it an adaptation mixed with an homage, under the same title.
