Mother Forks about to pounce on some dudes.

Mothering is the action of maintaining the planet and usually involves working the cobble generator, gathering wood, turning gravel into flint, making potions, and/or suppling weapons. Mothers, the players who stay home to do the task of mothering, are often suited in full armor to better defend the base. This is arguably the best use for armor as it is very difficult to knock them off the edge due to the size of the planet and even more difficult to slay them due to their armor and often superior weapons.
