A morality thread in the forums: Killing Orcs

This kind of topic always generates a lot of debate, since normally people go into it with the baggage of their moral standards, and we all know how different everyones are in close inspection.

Still i like these kinds of threads because it allows people to examine their moral lines. Of course there are a lot of openings to exploit in such arguments and specifics to be defined. It's a very back and forth discussion.

IMO It is something best saved for a forum over moral and philosophical debate. Although this illustrates how RPGs, for me, have been a great gateway into this kind of in depth analysis of my own moral code, those of others, and how perspective can complicate everything.
