The Story so Far
The end is nigh for planet earth! The sun is running out of fuel and life on earth only has about 100-500 years before it gets burnt to a crisp as the sun expands. Several years ago 20 ships were sent to search for new planets for humanity to move to. 13 have reported that they failed to find a suitable planet. The 14th has just reported that it succeeded.
Earth is governed by 20 ruling families, each of which owns huge companies. Each family has one vote within the council. The council needs to send at least one expedition to the new world to prepare it for the rest of humanity to follow. Each family wants their members to lead the expedition to get a better position in the new world.
The players are all members of one family, and I want to run the council meeting in game. How can I make it interesting?
