Here’s chapter 11 .
I never translate this chapter’s title because it will look weird .
The title is just I~to(Thread) maki(roll) .
Yeah . Something like that . Without further delays, here it is .
11 I~to maki maki i~to maki maki♪
A white thin thread is attached to my two forelegs .
It stretched when I pull the outer .
It gradually return to its original length when I relax my strength .
It became like a rubber just as planned .
What am I doing?
Because I now know that “Spider Thread” is a skill, I started experimenting the spider thread in various ways while increasing my skill proficiency .
Until now, I have only use my thread for making my nest and to restrain my prey .
That’s why I don’t understand much about my threads even though the one producing it is myself .
Leave my home and level up?
Though I got excited when I leveled up, but it’s impossible if I were to think calmly .
Well, think about it .
Do you think a woman who is good in games can win a real fight?
Even if my body is a monster, there’s no meaning if the person moving it is frowning .
( 体は魔物でも、それを動かす中身がしょっぱければ意味ないし。TL note: not sure what word to use for しょっぱければ )
As for moving a body in real and in game, it’s like Heaven and Earth .
In game, the character won’t get tired but in real, you get tired for how much you move .
Besides, I only went to school in my previous life and I was just a weak child lacking of physical strength .
I think it would be difficult to fight against a genuine monster who live with its wild instinct .
Though it’s not like I can’t do it, but failing=dead . I want to avoid such a risky choice .
If that’s the case then waiting for a pitiful prey to get caught in the net has a higher winning rate .
I think this is much more efficient and safer rather that wandering around in the dungeon aimlessly .
Someday, I think that I will leave my home, but that would only happen after I have level up more until I reached a certain point .
Though I used such an absurd character in the online game, in other RPGs, leveling at early gameplay is my style of playing .
Keep on leveling and defeating a boss while humming .
Especially, now that my life is on stake, I should act carefully until I have the confidence to win against other monsters .
As part of level raising now, I am trying to raise my “Spider Thread” skill proficiency .
Now that I think about it, this spider thread is like my lifeline .
I shivered while thinking that I would still wander around in the dungeon if I never make my home .
In that case, probably I would be dead by now isn’t it?
It’s impossible to take a rest at ease and it’s also impossible to catch a prey .
It’s all thanks to the spider thread that I am living comfortably now .
When thinking that, raising the level of my spider thread is the top priority for now .
I don’t know what’s going to change if its level increased but it definitely won’t be a loss .
Well, I thought I should find out the property of my thread while I am on it so I verify it in various ways .
I began producing thread and verify the adjustment of thickness, adhesion, strength and elasticity .
The adjustment of thickness was considerably easy .
When I intend to produce thin thread, a fairly thin thread was produced .
Though it’s impossible to make it invisible, it was possible to make it as thin as hair .
In this dark dungeon, it should be hard to see even this thread .
However, the result from the experiment on strength that I found out was the more thin the thread, the more easy the thread to break .
Well, this alone can’t be helped .
If I think normally, it is obvious that it becomes weaker .
If the level rises, it might increase its strength . Let’s put some expectations on it .
On the contrary, the strength rises when I make it thicker .
The thickest string that I can produce now is about 2cm in diameter .
Like a normal rope .
Well, that’s the maximum thickness I can produce right now, but I can make it more thicker if I tie the threads in a bundle .
But it takes a while .
I regret that I should not have done the experiment of adhesion .
It’s true that everyone thought that spider’s threads are adhesive, but to be honest, there’s also non-adhesive threads .
The reason why the spider itself won’t get caught in its own web is because it knows how to use it properly .
I understood it after making my nest with instinct .
Well, to know more about it, I experimented on it and I end up getting entangled by my own threads .
Ah, un .
To know about the proper use of both type of threads, it was necessary to get entangled by my own threads .
I am an idiot because I got caught by my own threads .
I got impatient .
Actually, I didn’t know that the adhesive power can be reduced even after the thread was released and I almost die getting caught by my own trap .
The adhesive power can be changed to some extent if the thread is still connected to my bottom .
After that, I tried to change the adhesive power of the thread that have been separated from my bottom and the result was I can change a little only .
I pull myself together and confirm the strength .
It’s weak if it’s thin where if it’s thick then it’s stronger . But I don’t know until what extent of power it can endure .
What I mean?
When I make its strength to maximum, I can’t cut it no matter how much power I use .
And the scary thing was that I can’t even cut it with my fangs .
If something were to be tangled by this thread, then it should not be able to escape .
Well, there may be monsters far stronger than me that can tear my thread off . So overconfidence is a taboo .
And lastly was the result of the elasticity experiment . Currently, I had a string getting stretch .
This rubber thread seems to be pretty useful .
It seems that I can make a simple sling by tying it with a stone .
In addition, it seems that it’s useful in various ways .
I am very satisfied with the experimental results .
But even I use the thread that much, its level didn’t increase .
In addition, there’s a problem that can’t be ignored has occurred .
The more thread I produce, the more energy I use .
In other words, I am very hungry now despite not much time has passed since I ate the frog .
It’s not like I hate this consumption rate but if I want to use a lot of threads next time, I better fill my stomach first before doing so because it seems dangerous .
