Is "Shall they live or die?" also correct?

I can tell this module is going to be a laugh and a half.

Slight variation on "will they or won't they" to raise the stakes. After all, you have to compete for the audience's favor.

If my life were important I would ask, "Will I live or die?" But I know, the answers lie far from this world...

I thought that "skal" implies a clear plan. Am I wrong? Or is the implication that they are at fault for their deaths?
