I’m a thirtysomething dad and IT professional living in the Austin, TX area. I started gaming way back in the day, 1982, with the TSR space opera game Star Frontiers. Since then I've been an avid roleplayer. I went to 5 Gen Cons, was a regional Triad for the RPGA's Living Greyhawk campaign, helped start a gaming club (the FORGE) in Memphis, TN, et cetera.

I GM and play a variety of RPGs; currently Pathfinder is in heavy rotation as well as various non-D&D-based games.

I have tried to clarify your question by being more proper about use of "player" and "character." Let me know if I've gotten any of it wrong.

comment What options does a Rogue have to tackle Wizard and Cleric party members who are planning betrayal?
There are a thousand items and strategies to take out a caster, from "stab them in their sleep when they still think you're a friend" on up - this is going to be too unfocused given the limited information available.

I don't see how the rules canon answer and the setting canon answer differ in any way. I assume he's asking "both" and the answer to both is the same...

-1 I find that there are too many "internet tough guy" answers like this on the site that just jump to booting someone without appreciation of other alternatives. Is it an alternative? Sure. Should it be the first resort? No.

No, it does not. That may or may not be fine with your GM, but you have the "right" to jack and crap and Jack just got killed by orcs.
