Quote4.) How does your setting (or lack thereof) reinforce what your game is about?Project Senate is built to be setting-independent, as much as possible. It does depend on the setting supporting the concept of people in power, but almost any setting imaginable does this to some extent. However, definition of the setting is of crucial importance in determining the nature of the resources involved, so the setting of a given campaign will necessarily be strongly tied to what the game is about.
Quote5.) How does the Character Creation of your game reinforce what your game is about?Character creation mechanics center almost exclusively on designing the initial relationships available to a character, which in turn determine the initial resource pool available. These mechanics are directly connected to the point of the game

QuoteI think your two comments on questions 4 and 5 are somewhat related. Though this may not be clear in the game text as written, Project Senate is just a working title, and there may not be an actual Senate. The game presupposes a first session where the setting is decided upon, and there are certain specific aspects that must be settled on before play can begin, such as the actual meaning of the resources, etc...
QuoteAs for an endgame mechanic, no, there isn't one, though, again, it remains to be seen whether characters will become runaway resource and relationship hogs, or, conversely, whether they will converge on game death in an inescapable downward spiral. The game as written is meant to support long-term play, so I hope neither of those will happen, but it's too soon to tell...
QuoteRight now, all I see is that it would be equivalent to trying to come up with an endgame for D&D.
