Other Storylines
Cinderella is Beyond Sweet - The 11th Seed Bugbear continued it's run by defeating the 2nd seeded Succubus, a perennial favorite, to make it past the Sweet Sixteen and into the Elite Eight.

Only Underdogs in Doppelganger Region - The region that was closest to having 1-2-3-4 in the Sweet Sixteen is instead the only region that isn't sending a #1 seed to the Elite Eight.

2x 1 vs 2 - Both the Owlbear and Illithid regions sent the top two seeds, all crowd favorites, to the Elite Eight.

Thanks again to all who have participated in the previous rounds and especially to our color commentators
