The Pitt, the second DLC pack for Fallout 3, was set in the post-apocalyptic ruins of Pittsburgh. The Pitt was essentially a slave camp where slaves were tasked with working in steel mills and collecting steel ingots from dangerous territory. Some slaves also participated in to-the-death fights in an arena to earn the right to work as a slaver. According to the guards only a few people ever managed to escape from The Pitt. The post-apocalyptic Pittsburgh is infested by a type of mutant known as Trogs and the wastelands are also populated by groups of humans known as wildmen. In Fallout 3 the Lone Wanderer infiltrates The Pitt disguised as a slave to overthrow the leaders of the slave camp and obtain a cure for the Trog mutation.
