Recovering a god password?

I'm the server administrator for three small pennmush communities. I've hosted them on a spare box for years now. One of the admins came to me after having lost his god username and password. How do I locate and recover these?

I'm an experienced system admin with little knowledge of pennmush's inner workings. I just run the darn thing. I would like to pick this up but the documentation is too geared to a unix user. I'm running the precompiled win32 binaries. Step by step instructions that don't assume knowledge of pennmush jargon would be greatly appreciated.
