Here’s the third chapter of the day .
45 Elro Great Labyrinth Lower Layer
The path I advance is considerably wide . Well, even the bee about 2 . 5 meters in length can fly freely and also the huge mantis that has the length around 5 meters can move freely in this passage .
『Elro Gresguard LV7 Failed to appraise its status』(エルローグレシガード)
The huge mantis intercepts the swarm of bees with the sickles on its hands . Unlike the ordinary mantis, it has six arms . It’s like the Asura . Although the bees tries attack it from the air, the bees can’t step into the attack range of the sickle easily . The progress of the battle is in stalemate .
I observe the situation while hiding in the rock shade . Neither of them have noticed my existence . The “Stealth” demonstrated its effect more than I thought . I appraise it more while peeping stealthily .
『Elro Gresguard：The mantis-type monster that inhabit in the Elro Great Labyrinth Lower Layer . It’s skillful in using powerful physical attacks with the sickle』
Ah, one of the bees was bisected by the sickle . Uwa, cut into two by a blow, that’s a great sharpness . If it’s that sharp, it might be able to cut my threads too . Well, it looks like it didn’t notice me yet, so I should pass through here quietly .
Or rather, there’s a word that can’t be ignored in the “Appraisal” result again .
『Elro Great Labyrinth Lower Layer：The area located between the middle layer and the bottom layer of the Elro Great Labyrinth . Countless powerful monsters inhabit here』
Hee, is that so? So, here’s the lower layer . I mean there’s even a bottom layer . There are a lot of powerful monsters . . . . . I might not want to know about this .
By the way, although I tried appraise the middle layer and bottom layer, the result that I got was 『The middle layer』 and 『The layer located at the most bottom in the thing that has the layer』 because the word was not connected with the “Elro” . It’s useless .
However, it looks like there’s another layer underneath when I thought that here is the bottom layer . No matter how I imagine about it, the bottom layer must be crowded with very powerful monsters . No matter what, it’s the bottom layer of the world’s largest labyrinth . Speaking of dungeon, the lower you go, the stronger the enemy becomes . If this lower layer is a place full of powerful monsters, then the imagination doesn’t seemed to be a mistake . Monsters of the Earth Dragon class might be all over the place . It’s terrifying just to imagine it .
However, that . The area where I came from is probably the upper layer . It should be connected to the surface because it was an area where human can enter . Then, the exit might be unexpectedly near too . Ah, although I avoided humans and acted, would it be better if I run after the footprints? But, even if I run after it and go outside, I’m in this figure . After all, even if I get out of this labyrinth, as long as I’m a spider, I have no choice but to live my life hunting as a monster .
No, now’s not the time for it . At any rate, I must escape from this lower layer . Even if I escape from the lower layer, there’s still the middle layer . In the first place, I don’t even know whether this path leads to the middle layer or not . I want to refrain from going to the bottom layer .
Ah, another bee got killed again . I say, this is the bee’s defeat . Mantis is strong . Isn’t that clearly stronger than the snake? This is strange . The snake should have been a boss character in my recognition . Although it can’t be compared with the Earth Dragon, isn’t it that the mantis is also considerably strong? The snake’s ranking in me drops rapidly . Isn’t it that the snake is not so strong in this lower layer?
Well, it’s still early to judge it . It might be that the mantis is just too strong .
I also thought that before . After bisecting the third bee, something unexpected happened to the mantis . Its body was bitten by the fangs of a huge spider that appeared suddenly .
Ha? Nono . Seriously?
『Greater Taratect LV18 Failed to appraise its status』
Wow . My super-evolution form . Seriously?
『Greater Taratect：The evolution form of the spider-type monster of the Taratect species . Carnivorous and has powerful poison in its fang』
Oou . I will become like that if I keep evolving . Although it’s still small if it’s compared with the super-huge spider which is my mother, it still has around 10 meters in length . The mantis looks small . I mean it killed the mantis only with the fangs without using threads? How can it be that strong in physical ability? My highest increase in status is only 21 . How many times I need to evolve to be like that?
For now, I need to run away quietly before it notice me . There’s no way I can win against such thing .
Un, but now, I understood it well . This lower layer is dangerous . What’s dangerous? As what can be seen! (見たまんまだよ！TL note: not too sure here) There are a lot of enemies here at a doubtful level whether I can win or not even if I make a nest . Seriously, it’s the matter where “Stealth” is really my lifeline . (マジで私の生命線が隠密だよりな件。TL note: don’t know about this) Were I hasty? Should I have forced my way through the bees as it is? But, at present, I didn’t felt any sense of danger like the Earth Dragon .
In addition, there’s monster that can defeat the bees too, so it’s not absolutely impossible . Although the mantis and the large spider seem to be strong, it might go well if it’s a different monster . Well, if there’s a monster that seems to be good, I will turn it into food . Other than that, I will go with the basic “Stealth” . At present, the red total stamina gauge still haven’t decrease . If I believe in this display, it not necessary to get impatient, and I should deliberately confirm my prey and act . I don’t want to do something careless that can draw a dangerous guy of the Earth Dragon class .
