If I were the Pauper who found the security hole that allows privilege escalation, I'd

  • Return the throne to the Prince: it's ethical
  • Return the throne to the Prince: the truth would get out eventually
  • Return the throne to the Prince: being King's Ward is better than being King
  • Keep the throne, see to that the Prince is treated well
  • Keep the throne, change rules to close hole from other look-alikes Update 2010-01-09: delete this option, it's not orthogonal enough
  • Keep the throne, abandon the Prince
  • Keep the throne, meet the Prince privately and laugh in his face
  • Keep the throne, have the Prince killed

      Hand the throne over to the best-paying villain: ethics are overrated

      How'd you convince the Archbishop to crown that villain?

      Ewww, that last option is the most evil of all.
      Keep the throne, turn kingdom into sinful spam depot by corrupting the local mail d(a)emon.
