"Morality and Prisoners"

Wait, you mean that you actually expect me to pay attention to some arbitrary code of ethics?  What kind of game is this, anyway?

Olan's thoughts for this strip:
Ahh, the eternal question of what to do with that evil prisoner. It's not like there is a convenient police station to take him to. It's not like you have the manpower to allow for you to handle normal guard duty.

And then the GM starts bringing in some silly set of moral codes if you want to kill him! Isn't being a hero supposed to be cut and dried?

Script for this strip:
Aranion: "Give him a weapon and I will let him die like a warrior."
Faustus : "Agreed."

Dalana: "Better than he deserves."
Jhim: "Aye, kill him and let's be off."
Ladan: "Seems fair. Kill him."

Steve: "What was that, oh holy man of Solanis?"

Rich: "What? He's evil, right?"

Steve: "...and you're a lawful good priest of a deity of light and life."

Ray: "If we don't kill him, he'll jump us later. You know how Steve does things."
Rich: "Exactly! He's clearly evil!"
Steve: "Your choice, Rich. Kill him, but don't expect your god to be happy."

Rich: "Ladan wouldn't be killing him. He'd be... uh... allowing him to die."
Steve (arched eyebrow): "Exactly."

Rich: "Where does it say that lawful good means you can't kill a prisoner?"

Steve: "Umm... page one of alignment, pretty much any edition you care to look up?"

Brad: "Sucks to be you, dude!"
