Re: Military coup attempt in Turkey? [coup fails] [skullcracking!]

The referendum was pretty close so there are still a lot of opposition voters. If the referendum had been 70-30 in favor I'd agree that the elections would be a formality. In this case I think there's still hope for the opposition.

Some info for the new faces: this is my second game. My first was the previous game on these forums (Diablo).

Would you have gone 100% scum if you couldn't redirect strongman?

I had a lot of fun, didn't expect to survive my first game.

I'm glad that holding on to my voteblock N4 didn't cost us the game. D5 would have been a lot less exciting though.
