Considering it's stated in the books that most Gorean men are lucky to see 1 Golden Tarn in their entire life time (Keeping in mind Gorean men live to be about 800 if they're lucky) I'd be puzzled ICly and OOCly.
ICly: How could one individual harvest a fortune that great? Who exactly is paying this amount of money, more than multiple cities together could muster up together for the life of a child? The controversial issue isn't that I'm killing a child, the controversial issue is what exactly is happening that I'm being offered this great amount of money for a death? There would have to be something going on globally that everyone knew about that would make this legitimate. No city alone could come up with 100 Golden Tarns, let alone one person.
OOCly: I find it depressing that people undermine the value of a Golden Tarn. This isn't the US dollar, you can't just print more of it. This is Gold. What the US currency used to be backed by. So what I don't understand is how someone could accumulate this much wealth and NOT be an assassin who has done COUNTLESS assassinations to gain that much or not be a global phenomenon that everyone knows about. Unless you are Ubar of Ar during a take over, who in their right mind would financially buckle a city if not more on the life of just a child? The circumstances are so absurd it's not even really a valid question.
My interpretation: So would you kill a child for a good amount of money?: No one is safe from an assassination, an Ubar's child? Possibly a future ruler in an oppressive city that is dominating another city? Sure, it sounds like a legitimate job. Of course I'd kill the child. Gor is a harsh world and it breeds harsh people. Maybe killing a child is ethically wrong nowadays but let's look back in more medieval times where Gor is based. I don't think a Prince of any age would be spared because he is a child.
