which middle-earth race do you want to be and why?
I'd be a dwarf of the Iron Hills or just stay as Balin.
After reading the Silmarillion, I'd have to say Noldor. I'd rather be from the House of Fingolfin than Feanor.
Welcome to the boards!
If I got a choice I would choose to be a elf of the house of the golden flower. (The house of Glorfindal before the fall of Gondilan. )
