The pit on an AberMUD is located in both the Church and the Temple of Paradise. dropping items, sacrificing them, into the pit gives experience points, amounting to their value, discoverable by the "value" command, which values all inventory. "Pit" is used as a verb, as in "I pitted Mjolnir" After being dropped into the pit the items accumulated in a room beneath the pit. As items do not re-spawn on an AberMUD, they are lost to play until reset of the MUD. To lessen the impact of loss of items, sometimes AberMUDs are coded to devalue valuable armour and weapons to discourage pitting.
