Here we are in Round 2!
The White Wyrm and Ancient Black Dragon have advanced so we have 8 Dragons battling it out for the championship.

You can review the first round here:
2015 Inaugural Dragon Invitation Tournament - Round 1 - VOTING COMPLETED

Here are the results:
9 Ancient Black Dragon def 8 Very Old Brass Dragon 39-25 (60.9%)
10 White Wyrm def 7 Very Old Green Dragon 39-22 (63.9%)

A reminder on a few points:
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, we all know that Red and Gold Dragons are the most powerful of their kinds so 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 hope all of the battles don't just end up going to the older dragon. There's got to be cases made for some of the younger ones, right?

Third, last round and this round are played at the higher seed's "home turf". The semi-finals and Championship match will happen at a special "neutral" location.

As a reminder 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)

I've split each match into two GeekList items. (thanks for the brilliant side-by-side formatting Stelio! One describing the two combatants with info from the 3.5 SRD and the second with a poll. Feel free to comment on either or both for each match to discuss why your choice would win a fight.

The polls are open until midnight Central time between Friday, Mar 27th and Saturday, Mar 28th.

The fight will take place in the home of the Gold Dragon. The SRD says a warm plain and the 2nd edition Monstrous Manual says that a Gold's lair would be a stone structure like a cave or castle.

The fight will take place in the home of the Bronze Dragon. The SRD says it would be temperate hills but I like the 2nd edition Monstrous Manual instead. The lair would be a cave only accessible by water so the fight would take place near or over a large body of water.
