The year is 1663 and you have been called by the Supreme General of the Jesuit Order to take part in a debate on if, when, and where to send a new mission into New France. You have heard back from Father LaForgue (who is the main character in the film Black Robe) and need to take his testimony into account when making your decision.
As there were twelve players, I split up the two factions evenly with three each (against sending a new mission at all to New France and for sending a mission to New France). There were six indeterminates who had to be persuaded to join one faction or the other. Our Supreme General held the deciding vote if there was a tie. The only character who is based off of a real-life person is the Superior General, Giovanni. Everyone else was entirely made up – but it allowed me to play with the themes of our course as well as the film.
