comment Does 5e address the murderhobos problem?
Murderhobo has a history of being a loaded term that is used by many to criticize what many perceive the stereotypical playstyle of past edition. As with all stereotypes while it has some truth it is near useless in judging the specific of a situation or how a individual plays. I bring this up not to criticize its use but to remind people not to color their judgement when reading 5e adventure. In the two released adventure I noticed a liberal use of defeat and similar terms that I believe tells the referee (and players) that there are more options than killing.

comment Does 5e address the murderhobos problem?
@waxeagle, note the liberal use of the word defeat instead of killing. For example the party gets 150 XP for defeating the Skeletons in room 4 (The Crypts) on Page 22. It doesn't say kill but defeaut. If the party was of evil alignment and seized control of the skeletons that is a defeat as much as the Paladin and Cleric of Life smashing them to bits.
