MUD Wiki

A god is the title often given the highest ranking immortal on a MUD. Gods are often the senior administrators of the MUD, but sometimes the status has emeritus qualities, being filled by a semi-retired immortal. Gods are sometimes assisted by archwizards, who usually do the actual work, and wizards who may have rather low status, even being considered code slaves.

Unless different terminology was chosen on most AberMUDs, the highest level in the game were the Gods (Goddesses, for female players) and was reserved for the MUD's administrators. This level has the highest privileges which including being able to retrieve items that had been sacrificed for points to the pit, moving players who were stuck, and even rebooting or shutting down the MUD.
