  1. noun A MUD object which is referred to in a room description, eg. part of the furniture. It cannot be picked up, but may have other uses. See arch (sense 2).
  2. noun An interesting aspect of the game's programming, eg. "The tour feature is quite useful for guests". This is the normal sense of the word in computer-literate circles.
  3. noun A non-irritating bug awaiting to be fixed, eg. "It's a feature of the invis spell that you can only cast it on players and mobiles". This derives from sarcastic usage of sense 2.
