But that is exactly what morality is about, isn't it? Knowing right from wrong, no matter what you stand to gain/lose. Otherwise we're talking about a calculated risk/decision where the pros vs. the cons are weighed against each other.

I'm not saying that such an approach can't be interesting but it has nothing to do with morality.

"Chess in particular had always annoyed him. It was the dumb way the pawns went off and slaughtered their fellow pawns while the kings lounged about doing nothing that always got to him; if only the pawns united, maybe talked the rooks around, the whole board could've been a republic in a dozen moves." - Commander Vimes in Thud! by Terry Pratchett
