Really, the only question to ask by this point is: 'what LA will the wyrmling get?'. To think I expected something of dragons.
Anyway, time for bronze dragons. Their breath weapons are a line of lightning and a cone of repulsion gas (the latter of which is actually a pretty cool save-or-suck). Skills are Disguise, Swim and Survival: three skills that are needed only sometimes, but pretty useful when they are.
Compared to the blue dragon, bronzes come out on top overall, though not enough to warrant a LA. Also: what is the deal with metallic dragons getting Speak With Animals?
Fun fact: dragons never get anything interesting at their first age increase. -0 LA.
Alternate Form is even more useless on dragons than it'd be on other ECL 12 characters: basically any ability possessed by the allowed forms a young bronze dragon already possesses by nature.
Here be more age categories
Greetings, traveler from the distant future. I placed this message here on 27-11-2017, knowing nobody would find it because nobody would ever look at a random dragon's level adjustment justifications. If you do find it though, feel free to inform me!

On 30-07-2020, Rockphed told me that, to my surprise, people still look at this page! Also something about masks and hornets.
Also, in case you were actually looking for my justification for those LA's: big dragon has big RHD, big RHD no good, -0 LA everywhere.
