Should I put what little credibility I might have on the line and roleplay a Dragon?
I've been craving to make a member of the Red Dragonflight, but I can just picture it resulting in me making an utter fool of myself.
Should I do it?

I'm actually a green dragon IRL.
I'd rather not add to the pile of roleplayers who just can't pull it off though. So I'm torn. Torn!

Wowwiki, I guess?
But really, although I myself am not a Dragon RPer, I for one would happily accept Roleplaying with a Dragon RPer.
Even if they don't fully pull it off, because if they would like I can always offer constructive feedback on it.
If they can? More power to them.
Thank you all for the input so far. It all helps!
While Wowpedia/Wowwiki is definitely a source I'll be using, I am wanting to go in a bit more depth, to be able to tackle this properly.
He just went offline. *grumble*
Thus why I want to be tactful in how I approach this. I wouldn't exactly claim as being a great roleplayer, but I go out of my way to be respectful to lore and other roleplayers.
It's also why I'm hesitant. <3

Why not? Dragons in lore seem to be pretty comfortable doing so. In fact, the first time you meet Chromie they say "Hi, I'm Chromie and I'm actually a bronze dragon!"
It's a stupid thing that was born thanks to RPers...if you show yourself to be a dragon you're immediately considered bad.
...Wasn't I (playing a random cultist) the one you killed over that?
Not quite sure what you mean here. Do you mean to say you want to play an adolescent twilight?
Nonetheless, will come back to these topics in 8 or so hours, when I wake up.
Its tough because most people like the dragons for being more powerful than normal heroes. Thus you get that power struggle and ... a cluster!@#$ after that. Expect people not to like you no matter how good of a job you do, IC and OoC. My rogue is essentially a dragon hunter and you'll meet a lot of people who'll kill them for sport, trophies, what have you.
The biggest problem is the power innate with older dragons. That's where you'll meet most friction. If you're anything above a whelp or a young drake you've innately more ability than a normal mortal. If you're looking to play an older wyrm... I advise against it. Even well done, as seems to be the stigma of dragon role players, you're still telling everyone you're better than everyone else.
In the end, yes it is your 15$. This is just the opinion you asked for.
