I'm trying something new this year.
Just like the NCAA and the NIT basketball tournaments run simultaneously I thought I'd try something similar. But instead of the second tournament being filled with lesser "teams" I wanted to ratchet up the stakes a bit.

Round 3 of the FD&DMMM is here:
2015 Favorite D&D Monster March Madness - round 3 (Sweet 16) - VOTING COMPLETED

The Dragon plowed its way through the first FD&DMMM tournament and hasn't had a chance to show its stuff since. And even then it was just a generic "Dragon" when there is so much more to dragonkind.

So this year I'm inviting the 10 true dragons, Chromatic and Metallic, to a winner takes all tournament. And there are a few twists.

First, in this tournament I don't want you to vote for your favorite. I want you to vote for who you think would win in an actual fight. And please describe all of your reasons in gory detail if need be.

Second, since we all know that Red and Gold Dragons are the most powerful of their kinds I have to level the playing field a bit. To that end each dragon will be of a specific age. I'll be assigning and age to try and keep things relatively even. I'm using the CR from 3rd edition and XP from 2nd edition AD&D. (I'm sorry, I didn't calculate XP for 1st edition AD&D)

Third, just like in the NIT, the first two rounds will be at the higher seed's "home turf". And the semi-finals and Championship match will happen at a special "neutral" location.

Here are the seeds
1 Mature Adult Gold Dragon (age category 7)
2 Old Silver Dragon (age 8)
3 Old Red Dragon (age 8)
4 Old Bronze Dragon (age 8)
5 Old Copper Dragon (age 8)
6 Very Old Blue Dragon (age 9)
7 Very Old Green Dragon (age 9)
8 Very Old Brass Dragon (age 9)
9 Ancient Black Dragon (age 10)
10 White Wyrm (age 11)

Since we have 10 participants this first round will only have two matches. The winner of the first match will take on the Gold Dragon. The winner of the second match will take on the Silver Dragon.

I've split each match up into three items. The first two have info from the SRD stat block to give you an idea as to each dragon's abilities. Feel free to point out why each one would win or lose the fight so that people get to read it before getting to the third item to vote on who would win. Or point out other editions' versions' abilities. There are people that are far more knowledgeable than me.

The polls are open until midnight Central time between Monday, Mar 22nd and Tuesday, Mar 23rd.
