Bad recoil.

All effort will be punished immediately.

Very cool! Have we seen this before?

29507: Daran - Friday, January 14 2022 - 12:57 AM

I dont feel so good Mr Nail ...

29508: Kiithnaras - Friday, January 14 2022 - 1:31 AM

Aww, that's so cute! He's like Gaston, now, only still more of a lazy slacker. ; )

Poor Noah...

The portrait bleeding in the background, and now Noah is bleeding. That good foreshadowing, is our Nightmarish Wizard also a Nightmarish Devin ?

@joe: Yeah, Gazz has been on the receiving end of spirit recoils. He suffered an especially bad one back in strip 1345 following the fight against Malhart's kids which subsequentially put him out of commission.

Oh shit, that's brutal.

29513: Paintr - Friday, January 14 2022 - 11:24 AM

Wait, didn't the Aristobandits destiny punch also cause this? I'd assume it's essentially just overwork but the word recoil makes it sound like there's an extra wrinkle to it.

29514: UnknownID - Friday, January 14 2022 - 11:51 AM

"I don't feel so good" doesn't sound like an appropriate description of spitting blood (and bleeding eyes, but he's not aware of these atm)...
Hope Noah will be alright, but I guess this means, no more shields for a while for him... :(

This implies proper training goes a long way in lowering the effects of spirit recoil.

It also implies that this training exists and Nail/Veda are aware of it, and the kids haven't received any despite that. That's fun.

29516: @Zed - Friday, January 14 2022 - 2:37 PM

Some kids (like Fuuka, IIRC) stated that they received additional training. I suppose Noah wasn't considered for this because of his non-combative personality. Or maybe he would get it in due time, after all they are just starting... assuming the school will resume activity.

@Zed - I assumed that the "special training" was somewhat more specialized. Veda obviously knows a lot about magic, so she probably gave them guidance on how to tap into their abilities.

As for dealing with spirit recoil, the kids' training was really kind of a rush-job. There wouldn't have been time to properly condition them to deal with it. I'm sure that the planning stages didn't even account for the possibility of it being an issue.

29518: Some guy - Friday, January 14 2022 - 8:27 PM

Well, up till now there wasn't much they could have trained him with. He only started using abilities that would be suitable a few pages ago.

Noah's worst day of his life is coming along quite nicely is say.

29520: Lanth - Saturday, January 15 2022 - 4:00 AM

Well now the 2 of them are bloodied all over. That must be good for team spirit
