    So this allows: Races of the Dragon, Dragon Magic, Draconimonicon, and any other book with the allotted words in the title, while also allowing feats from books without it in the title like Gape of the Serpent (because it has Serpent) from Savage Species.

    Very interesting. I am in to cook, although this will be... interesting.
    No. Those books are explicitly called out as options beyond the "must have this in the title" in order to give you options. You can use anything from those books as if they explicitly had one of the qualifying descriptors in their title.

    • Dragons of Eberron
    • Dragons of Faerun, including the web enhancement
    • DMG and DMG II
    • MM I-V
    • PHB and PHB II
    • Races of the Dragon
    • Serpent Kingdoms (FR)

    Fun Fact Into the Dragon's Lair (FR 3.0) and Voyage of the Golden Dragon (Eberron) are adventure modules with "Dragon" in their name

    The individual feats, PrCs, etc. outside those sources, though, I leave to the chefs.

    trying to be inclusive with my examples so as to not specifically call out a Build someone may use
    A gem dragon would qualify as a legal option regardless of what book you pulled it from, because it has one of the qualifying descriptors in it's entry title "dragon". Whichever book you're pulling it from would have the rules as to what you're using, either manifesting, maneuvers or spells.

    as long as a source is otherwise legal for the normal competition you can use it in this round. Dragon magazine, despite 1) not being a book, and 2) still banned from competition, is still not a valid source simply because it has the descriptor "Dragon" in it's title line.
