Re: How to make combat a little bit faster.
Problem with morale is if the monster wouldn't be able to surrender or would normally fight to the death. Unintelligent undead. Obvious monsters that can't surrender and would just be killed anyways (say, a giant ooze or slug).
I had a choker try to surrender and they promptly executed it. Some monsters would realize surrender is essentially suicide, and fight like a cornered rat.
One thing I do in a situation where there's only one standard monster left and it's clearly not going to make a dent, is to end combat but tax a few PCs one healing surge. Thus "you al ganged up on it, it did a little damage, but was quickly overwhelmed".
