The New Order: Last Days of Europe Wiki

Robert F. Kennedy, commonly known as RFK or Bobby, is an American politician, lawyer, brother of American Vice President John F. Kennedy and son of former President Joseph P. Kennedy. After serving in the U.S. Naval Reserve from 1944 to 1946, he returned to his studies in Harvard and graduated in 1948. He also was a lawyer for the Justice Department during his brother's term in the U.S. Senate.

In-game

If Richard Nixon vetos the Civil Rights Act, after his brother is assassinated, RFK leaves the Democratic Party and joins the Progressive Party, becoming the National Progressive Pact's candidate for the 1964 Presidential election. His presidency focus is passing the Civil Rights Act and expanding social security standards. If his reforms go to far and anger the far-right, he can get assassinated alongside Vice President Hubert Humphrey, and be succeeded by Strom Thurmond, the president pro tempore of the Senate.

How to avoid his assassination

After passing the Civil Rights Act of any type, Kennedy has two variables that determine when his assassination takes place: level and target. Each month that passes, the target increases in value depending on how high his level is. For example, if the level is at 20, then each month will add 20 to the target and if it is at -7, then each month will subtract the value by 7. Some of Kennedy's decisions and focuses raise the level higher such as the COINTELPRO focuses and decisions to investigate the FR-NPP while the "Ease Southern Fears" decision that costs 150 political power lowers the level. As long as the target does not exceed 250, Kennedy won't get assassinated. When the presidential election season starts every February, the target does not raise until after the season is over, but keep in mind the level can still rise depending on what Kennedy does during those months and the beginning of February. The target can then rise one last time meaning it is still possible for Kennedy to get assassinated in February.
