I'm looking for dragon as a player character that doesn't destroy the game -- if it is too powerful for the players who don't play dragons it is not a desirable choice.
I would like to play a character as a dragon. Most of what I found was related to 3.5e and dragons from Draconomicon.
A template that I found for a 5e dragon-as-PC as that this link, but judging from the comments at that site it has balance problems. (Too strong at the beginning, poor later).
How can I make this template work?
What modifications will make it a better fit to the 1 to 20 class level progression that other classes/archetypes have?
