I have a question regarding dragon sizes. There are three sources (Monstrous Manual 2e, FOR 1: Draconomicon and Draconomicon 3e) that give sizes of dragons and they are pretty different. For example an Adult Red dragon’s body length in 2e is 80-99 feet, while (1) In 3e its body is 18 feet. So they are drastically different. Excluding editions, what size would fit dragons in the Realms more, 2e or 3e? Also, dragon sizes in 2e are drastically different depending on the dragon, like the adult mercury dragon is 24 feet.
Thanks in advance!

This just shows you how utter-stone-scared most humans who get anywhere near dragons are. They can’t even guesstimate straight! However, Elminster tells me you’ll live longer if you trust the larger dragon sizes. (Small ones probably aren’t adults.) Mind you, if a dragon of smaller size came up to me and said they were an adult and to write that down,
…I would completely believe them and write it down IN MY FLESH.

Nicely said, sir! You are wise. Also, still alive.
