#2018 Lore Tournament: Day 2
Welcome to day 2 of the 2018 Lore Tournament!
[Yesterday](https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/story-art/Wns6RG83-2018-lore-tournament-vote-for-your-favorite-stories-of-the-year) we saw Nunu and Ezreal go head to head with Frozen Heart's vs An Explorer's Journey.
The winner will go on to oppose Confessions of a Broken Blade (featuring one of League's 'power couples'; Riven and Yasuo) on the 15th.
But today, we have a battle between a story from Swain, and a very recently released story featuring Nidalee:
[The Black Powder Plot](https://universe.leagueoflegends.com/en_US/story/swain-color-story/) _by David Slagle_
Several Noxian commanders in a tent on the Rokrund Plains, await the verdict of the the Grand General of Noxus, Swain, on the battle ahead.
[Human Blood](https://universe.leagueoflegends.com/en_US/story/nidalee-color-story/) _by Meaghan Bowe_
A lizard-like vastaya is caught in a human's cruel trap - when a not-entirely-human Nidalee comes to the rescue.
Do you prefer the tale of a tail in the jungle? Or is watching Swain reading a room of suspicious underlings? Are you subject to recency bias, or have (black) rose-tinted glasses changed your feelings over the months? Are people who are voting for/against [one story] clearly unaware of what makes [the other story] such a treasure/trashpile?
