Kumo Desu ga, Nani ka? Chapter S29

Shun 29.

S29 Offer

「Thank you for all your help」

We lower our head to Basgas-san.
We escaped from the Elro Great Labyrinth, and we lodged in Basgas-san's base for one night.
And, it's decided that we will leave immediately to the Elf Village in the morning of the next day.
We are parting with Basgas-san here.


Basgas-san says so and nods.

「However, is it really okay for me to take all of the materials of the Earth Dragon? It's a fortune if you sell it, you know?」
「Yes. This is a hurry trip, so we can't take it. Please consider it as reward for helping us」
「Then, I will take it without reservation」

Basgas-san smiles broadly.

「Basgas-san. If」
「Lad, I'm a humble guide」

Basgas-san says so interrupting my words.
It was the answer to the words that I was going to say.

Basgas-san is an experienced warrior.
I was able to understand it enough in the Elro Great Labyrinth.
In addition, he also has excellent judgment that comes from his experiences.
To be honest, I want this person to come along with us.

But, Basgas-san's word denied it.

「As for the guide, guiding is the work. Even more, I'm already retired. There's no place for an old man to butt in any further」

Basgas-san who says so and laughs.
But, he stops the laughter immediately, and begins to talk with a serious face this time.

「Lad. Although this is my intuition, I think that a huge incident will occur in the near future. There's no grounds, but I always have an anxiety that can't be cleared for these past few years. The riot that Lad got involved might be the harbinger」

It's not only the matter of Yuugo.
The large-scale war with the Demons.
Taking over the Hero.
The world movement these days is very active.

「Because I have guided you all, I will pray that the world change to the better way. Then, the guides will be blessed than we deserve」

Basgas-san hold out his hand.

「I will do my best so that it will become like that」

I grasped the hand firmly, and shook a firm handshake.

Two days after we part with Basgas-san.
We move by riding on the Light Drake's back.
The place we are heading is the country called Sariera country where the transfer magic circle to the Elf Village is concealed.

The Sariera country places the original religion called the Goddess Religion as the state religion that's different from the Divine Word Religion, and it's a radical nation that fought against neighboring nations when we are babies.
The national power dropped considerably in the war, and they stay hidden after that, so it's not understood that what will happen in this country.
We advanced while being cautious enough.

「Offer the skills! Then, you will be saved!」

When we enter the town to buy foods, etc, there were people shouting such words everywhere.

「The Sariera country is the nation that worships the Administrator Sariel. Therefore, let's try not to be concerned with them as much as possible」

I also agree to Sensei's low voice.
It's doubtful whether the shouting man is sane or not.
If this is the act of the Administrator, it's not a good feeling.

「What's offering skills?」
「It's said that there are two meanings. The first one is erasing the skill by the skill called 『Skill Erasure』」
「Can such a thing be done?」
「Yes. 『Skill Erasure』 is a skill that can be acquired without skill points, and it erases skill by taking a few days. Because it won't stop until all of the skills disappear when it's activated, it's impossible to erase the targeted skill alone. Of course the disappeared skill won't return. If a person trains again, the skills can be acquired back」
「Is there a meaning to do that?」

From what I heard so far, I don't understand the meaning of such a skill.
It's only a disadvantage to lose the skills.
Even if the skills can be acquired back if a person trains again, the time taken until then will not return, and if there's the paid skill points, it's wasted.
It's like throwing away the thing that you accumulate until then purposely.

「In other words, it's transferred as power to the Administrator」

I see.
In other words, the power that's cultivated by the people is offered to the Administrator.
That's the essence of the 「Skill Erasure」 skill.

「Come to think of it, Sensei have erased Yuugo's skills once」
「Yes, but that's something like a trick. Erase the others' skills instead of paying a big compensation. Although I say it because it's now, when I activate it, some of my skills are lost, and I slept for many days after that. Because it's a dangerous method that both me and the opponent can die, I don't want to use it again」
「I see」
「I thought that it was the best at that time. If the skills are lost, I can remonstrate Yuugo who became arrogant. I believed so. Even though the important one is to regain his own mind as a person properly after that, I have neglected it. And, the result is this. I'm disqualified as a teacher」
「It's not Sensei's fault」

Although I thought that it's an unskillful comfort, I can only say that.
The bad one is Yuugo who actually took the action.

「Thank you. But, this is the distinction as the teacher. It's the last education that Sensei can do to the former student who's on the wrong path」

Sensei's eyes that filled with dark determination.
I was not able to say anything to it.

「And, what's the second one?」

I change the topic.

「I don't know the second one well. Something like offering the skills to reach the God」
「That's like the words of the religion」

The clergy who shouts in the town.
I wanted to get away from this place that has a dark atmosphere as soon as possible.

    1. try to change youre post a little
      for example you could say oye or i dont know show some creativity

      and also thanks for new chapters :D

    2. A while back I thought I already read a chapter because his comment was the same. xD

    1. Because in all likelyhood she has everything completely wrong. From what we know of Shiro and "the goddess" the admins are anything but evil gods harvesting power from the people and the goddess is apparently basically killing herself trying to save everyone. Further more it seems the elves might be the ones actually feeding on the world (although what this means isn't clear yet).

      But Sensei herself doesn't appear to have malice and since she revealed herself to the other elves they most likely don't see her as one of them and fed her lies to get her to obey them. So sensei thinks she's fighting the evil gods but in reality she's most likely helping the elves do the very thing she's trying to stop.

      So unless Sensei knows the truth and is playing dumb VERY well she's basically the elves puppet.

    2. Oh wow. I never think of it this way. but if admin is really a good guy why kumoko be mad at them? I think we still can't decide it for sure unless we know more about taboo in the future.
      PS.or may be if admin didnt lie that mean there gonna be big plot twist about it in future. Can't wait to read it!

    3. When sensei reach taboo lv10 she will know how much she's right or wrong.

    4. SHe's mad at gyuri gyuri because he doesn't wipe out the humans and demon people already.

      And the goddess doesn't want to do that and wants to save all.
      But humans and demons seem hell bent on their own destruction that the idea is nearly impossible

      Plus at the same time the goddess is probably dying in some way because of the people. And it seems that if she dies the world dies along with her.

      Remember she's not trying to save the world. she's trying to save herself.
      And if the world incidentally gets saved in the process so be it.

      If she becomes a god/god she will be freed from this world system and won't have to worry about it when it dies.
      That's her whole motive in this. It's nothing but pure self-interest and self protection.

      Become god = save self
      The world? = not my problem

    5. Kumoko is probably mad at Kuro because he spoiled mankind. And yes I agree that the elves are probably the main villains. Sensei is very likely misguided. We need to wait for Shun to get that last taboo lv (which is probably when the truth is revealed).

    6. well, yeah, that's basically it Arthit. She said that Gyuri was to soft and naive. She's basically mad at Gyuri and Sariel for not disciplining the kids and letting them wreck the house everyone's sharing to the point that it's about to collapse onto everyone and kill them all.

    7. I have a small theory that's 50/50 at best.

      The women Shun saw in the dream is most likely Sariel and she is most likely not just an Admin but is serving as the core to the world system. The power for skills and levels is drawn through her. But the population has grown so large and everyone so greadily gathers skills and levels without a care that Sariel is being pushed to her limits.

      Perhaps the original system didn't even need an admin at the core but the original system was about to collapse and Satiel became the core to prevent it instead of punishing the humans and demons that abused the system.

      But in the end that was only a temporary fix and even she is about to collapse and if she goes the whole system will go and take the world with it. So now Kumoko is going to reduce the world population until the world regains stability.

      As for the Elves perhaps they know all this and want the world to stop using skills so that they can horde their use for themselves without straining the system. They know that with the system in it's current state they can't afford to be too greedy so they are trying to convince the world to stop using skills completely so they can safely abuse the system themselves.

    8. Oh.....just wait.
      Just wait hehehwhwhwhwhwh.

    9. I knew it.

      I expected this long ago, but conveniently enough, none of you said a ** thing on the relevant page.

      D outright told Kumoko that taking people's skills when they die is what Administrators do, and Kumoko all but confirmed that she figured that was the case.

  3. Thanks for the chapter. This poor country. Should not have attacked her when she was trying to save them...

    1. well, i can't blame that soldier
      who wouldn't get freaked out when you see a cute spider wiping out enemy's elite army in mere seconds?

    2. Yeah they could have all but crushed the divine world religion but instead they basically committed suicide by attacking the one who saved them for no reason. Even if they were confused by the situation attacking the divine beast unprovoked was a truly foolish thing to do.

  5. Thanks for the chapter!

  6. Let see how long can she keep saying things like "admins being evil" when she reach Taboo 10

  8. Administrators are gods? uhm interesting , looking forward to next chapters thanks for this one.

    1. This comment has been removed by the author.

    2. You just realized that now? gyuri gyuri is a god you know.

      Even D the highest administrator introduces herself as an evil God

    3. i just tought that there is one god isn't? now we have more of them ;\D

    4. u can think of them as something like god in norse.

      depend on myth. number of god differ. this story is just a story of polytheist

  9. Administrator Sariel, hmm? HMM??

    1. if that was the case, there would be more.

    2. The main thing you need is divinity area expansion first.
      Ruler skills are great now but if you don't have this you're not turning to a god.
      And it requires a strong mental structure.
      Like being the ruler of patience or breaking out of brainwashing and accepting yourself as finally being reborn as a girl

    3. pushing it arnold. Delete your post.

    4. all I said was true obvious fact

      No Definity area expansion no godhood.
      Well at least that's what I believe I think it's similar to the Buddhism and Buddha hood all intent.
      You know with the whole self dependency and enlightenment yada yada yada

  11. Thank's for the chapters kumo-chan. ヾ(⌐■_■)ノ♪

  12. I wonder why every time I read the S chapter, I hate Shun even more..

    1. It's probably his naivete that's getting to you. He thinks he can get by without killing his enemies, he thinks 3000 is spine chillingly powerful, and he completely believes Sensei's story about the Admins.

      It's like watching a lets player who has no idea what they are doing. It's a kind of frustration where you want to yell at them.

    2. Because there's a wonderful contrast between Kumoko and Shun. Kumoko has to work for her skills, to the bone. Her powers and her livelihood are something she earn, each and every one of them. Meanwhile, he's born with shitload of skill points and stats, live in luxury, basically a golden spoon in his mouth the moment he appeared. It is annoying to think that he is going to be Hero, her counterpart (demon queen).

    3. Although since this world rewards hard work the contrast between hard worker Kumoko and golden spoon Shun is very apparent to us. Perhaps another part of what makes him annoying is he doesn't realize this. While he tries to remain humble you can tell he's confident in the strength that barely killed a starving level 2 Earth Dragon.

      Even if it's understandable why he's ignorant it's still a bit annoying seeing him act like "yeah I can handle pretty much anything" when it's clear he is still minor league in the grand scheme of things.

  13. Thank you for the chapter :)

  14. I find it funny that shun wants to basically defeat the admins when he's not even good enough to be Canon foder for kumoko's kids

    1. And even she doesn't want to piss off the admin cuz she'll know she is instant dead no matter how many times she tries to escape with her soul

  15. I find it funny that shun wants to basically defeat the admins when he's not even good enough to be Canon foder for kumoko's kids

  16. thank you for 5 chapter sir it fun it fun yeah!!

  17. This bastard making false promises when he doesn't know shit! Lol
