His naïve mind set is going to get him killed when the legion is sent over to exterminate the colony. What is he going to say to people who kill monsters as easily as people breath air??

As we approach the nest I find myself in a huddle with Torrina, Corun and my pet gang in the centre of our column. I'm not sure where the prisoners are being held, somewhere toward the back, I imagine. Hopefully they can adjust to their new abode. I may not like them very much, but I don't want total suffering for them. Claws crossed we use them as part of a peace negotiation or something.

Leaving her alive is just going to hurt the colony in the long run since they will do their best to hunt him and his family down to kill them all.

[My people will hunt you down, monster,] she spat, [and when we do, I'm going to be there. I rip your core out myself and reincarnate your corpse just so I can desecrate it.]

Doesn't he have healing magic he could use to heal himself also now along with the healing gland?

Deciding that prevention is better than recover, I trigger the gland as my sub-brains spin up another set of inverse bolts. I've had way less practice with this form of the spell, and it shows, the relatively simple magic taking up to ten seconds to form. To save on brainpower, I drop the Gravity Domain. The low mass and high power of the monster made it ineffective anyway. Now that my strategy has flipped less gravity rather than more, it no longer makes sense to spend resources on it.

If the monster is really light the gravity pull thing he can do would work pretty well on it.

This cocky monster is going to catch these mandibles, just as soon as I manage to get a hook on him. The strange thing is how he was able to enter and exit my gravity domain so easily… Is it a question of mass? True, he's thin as an anorexic stick on an Atkins diet, but I'd assumed that he'd be dense, like Crinis. That shadow flesh can be packed pretty darn tight. I'm starting to suspect that they may not have done that in order to avoid hampering his speed. Which means that gravity magic may not be the answer to my problems. Or perhaps it still is? I may just need to think outside the box. Regardless, I still have tricks I haven't shown off that I can use.

I wonder what he choose for the other +20 upgrades. If the book already said assume I sadly forgot. QwQ

Quickly bringing up the menu, I peruse the options as I think about the direction I've taken my coordination cortex so far. The first two mutations focused on improving the brain's ability to work independently, then I improved their ability to work together and fused it. For the +20 upgrade, I took the Indomitable option, which allowed the coordination cortex to help spread the load of mental strain across my minds to prolong my ability to work for an extended time under stress. When combined with my Collective Will Vestibule, if I ever get back in range of the Colony, I might be able to keep slinging spells forever.

I just realized it looks like he is getting one pet from each strata so far. Since he has Tiny form the first one, Crinis from the second, and now this lesser imp from the third one. I hope he keeps up this trend it seems interesting.

Putting aside what life may be like in the Third Strata, the weak physical skills, lack of mobility and focus on pure spellcasting make this monster feel as if it doesn't belong on its own, flying solo. As part of a group, acting as a support caster? Perfection! Eager to investigate the possibilities to their fullest I bring my antennae down to touch the core and activate the core surgery skill. My mind is immediately flooded with the densely encoded biology of the demon.

Actually what is the curse? I am really curious!

It has been three days after Kyrie randomly appeared out of nowhere in his room, and Kyrie, despite knowing all the rumors, always shows goodwill towards him. Kyrie always makes sure that he is comfortable and dignified. However, the more Kyrie acts like that; the more Ian feels shaken deeply about it.

🙏 Praise be the ant.

Actually… I'm not as tired as I should be?

From what I remember it only brings the penalty down one evolution. So if you're on your 3rd evolution with that stomach the biomass you would get would be as if you were on your 2nd evolution which is still pretty op but not as op as getting rid of the entire penalty.

Eagerly, I fiddle about with the menu and begin to check my options for changing my stomach from a non-mutable organ and into a mutable one. Since it turns out that not every organ within a monsters body is able to be upgraded at the time they are born, getting the new members of the colony to enable their stomachs for mutation during their first evolution was critical. Once they could upgrade it, selecting the option to make food consumption more efficient by negating the evolution penalty.

Nice! Now all he has to do is finish absorbing that rare core. :D

Not caring if the Kaarmodo was scrying from above, I threw myself onto the ground and wiggled with sheer joy, my legs kicking ecstatically in the air. Finally ready to evolve to the fourth tier after all this time! My levelling speed had been severely knocked back by having to fight against lower tier monsters this entire time, but I've finally done it. And just in time!

Ah man there goes my idea. QwQ

Theoretically I could use my water magic to create all of the water that we needed but according to Beyn, materials created by mana don't quite have the same natural properties or capacity to hold mana quite like the original does. You can survive on mana produced water, for example, but it doesn't hydrate nearly as well as natures' own. This applies to anything made with mana apparently. You can make metals with some advanced classes of earth mage but they just aren't as good as what can be mined. So rather than settle for second best, I want a natural water source for the farms.

He has water magic he can use so couldn't he make a lake for ants to use? If humans can make lakes then an ant with the ability to make water out of thin air certainly could! Plus the digging for the lake would be really easy.

Unlike at our last nest, I don't have a convenient pool of mana charged water that I can siphon off into the nest, in fact, the closest water supply is the river on the other side of the village.

Wouldn't all that water boost Tiny's lightning attacks on the monsters?

I scuttle up the wall and move closer to unleash the full fury of my water cannon on the densely packed monsters. The sheer pressure of the water smacking into the monsters doesn't do a whole lot of damage but it sure knocks them around a lot! From up here I can fire upon the monsters just in front of Tiny without hitting the big lug so I sweep the spell across the crowd, sending monsters flying into their neighbours from the impact.

Wait I just realized with his water magic couldn't he use it to make a mana pond in the colony for the ants. Whenever it gets low he just needs to fill it up. So it helps him level up his water magic, and it makes the ants stronger! To make this water magic really useful for fighting going into some ice magic would be useful.

If I had imagined before that using water magic on a plant was like giving it a gentle sprinkling I have been convinced with this attack. It's more like hurling a block of concrete at it. Unlike fire which causes damage by burning or electricity which zaps organism whilst also burning them, water doesn't seem to have any inherently harmful properties. It's important to remember though that when water is accelerated to sufficient speeds it becomes harder, more difficult to break up.

The humans could be used as a liaison to other humans since they wouldn't think a giant ant coming to meet them is a good thing. They could also be used as a middle man to get some something that only humans can craft or supplies they have easier access to. In return they live safely near the ants for protection. And if anyone dies from old age or whatever the bodies can be used to feed the ants. >:)

[Tell your people to go make camp at least one kilometre in that direction] I point with my antennae in front of the shocked woman, [tell Beyn I want him to get them settled make sure they don't interfere with the workers or approach the nest, he's in charge. I want you to stick around so I can ask more questions].
