Heres an idea that came to me while reading Maid the RPG. Essentially Maid is about gaining influence over the other maids and the master via seduction or any other means possible.
Switch this to a political scenario. Imagine that the PC’s are the generals and staff of a war office, fighting to gain the Presidents ear and have their voices heard above the others. Now imagine that this is in the wake of some national or international disaster. Each PC wants the President to further their own agenda, from the General who wants to counter-strike (war is good for business) to the aide who whats to be noticed and gain influence to the opposition leader who just wants everything to go as badly as possible (thus making him stronger for the next election).
Think I might have to work on this a bit more, it could be fun.
