There is a tremendous difference in how the kinetic energy of a nuke does damage between exploding above ground and below ground. Compression and channeling the energy matters. Analogy: imagine a firecracker going off in you open palm. It will burn you and it will hurt. Now imagine that same firecracker going off in your closed fist. You might lose some fingers or your hand completely. All Bakker threads should have michael bay references. +1 *** i am enamored of the idea that kalbear floated in the last thread that the nonmen are worse than the inchoroi. what evidence do we have to support hat theory? Did the nonmen create damnation? How could we forget, cousin ? the best evidence might be literary structure, where the prologue introduces us to the antagonist, not an inchoroi , but a nonman. Not just any non man, THE non man. bakker may have been taking a cue from GRRM and felt like he had to establish the long term stakes of the series in the opening prologue, thus we encounter a non man. This would indicate that the inchoroi are a red herring, a way to refocus the readers attention so that they redirect their attention away from the real antagonist, but when it is revealed they think, "fuck, it's been there all along in plain sight!"
