Title pretty much says it all, since they are all females how do they reproduce? 


Well, as just a fun fact, there is a way for females to get each other pregnant, but the offspring will be a female.

So maybe that. I don't know.

They reproduce by budding, which is why they wear the most clothing. Underneath that clothing is the half-formed body of another Yun, ready to burst out in a magnificent display of blood and pus.

I assume that there's a set amount of yun in the world and when they expire, they just reincarnate later.

Is there any reason to believe that they can't simply mate with other races and produce other Yun?

Ok, here's an answer as close to the lore as possible:

 

Short version: Gon males. 
 

Long version: Yun descend from Fenghuang, A mythical Asian bird queen, that is usually paired with dragon kings, from which Gons descend. So, Yun probably get it on with Gons to get more Yun.

This actually got a response from the senior writer for the NA/EU version of the game in the following thread:

 

 

 

Relevant quotes:

 

@LastWriterStanding 

As a roleplayer I would just like to say that I love this games story, and while I have not gotten very far in the story (I think I reached level 28 or so) I have been enjoying it all. Luckily my leveling partner is my SO and we read all the dialogue, side quests included. That lovely fella in Gloom Forest with the southern accent make me laugh every single time, I don't know why. Anyways I do have a question for you and it something that a few other roleplayers have expressed interest in knowing as well.

 

Q: I love the Yun race, everything about them is the epitome of elegance and grace. On the bladeandsoul.com website the write up says they are descendants of a mythical Asian bird. How are knew Yun created in present time? With them being an all female race this makes it even more curious to me. I had a head cannon in mind that was closely akin to that of the Mass Effect Asari but I'd rather get some official information from your team.

 

 

@Adamaris

It's always nice to see an active RP community crop up in any game.  Don't let the haters get you down, yeah?

 

As for the Yun themselves, along with the other races of the world, I'm afraid there's not a lot of information about them or their origins.  While the writing/localization team did indeed work on some background for the various groups (histories, cultural habits, common slang among each race/region, etc) there wasn't a lot of exploration about the races in the original EN1 content.  The two most prominent Yun in the game are Jinsoyun and Jiwan, and they don't exactly get a lot of non-plot related screen time, after all.  If it's not there in the first place, we have a limited capacity to expand on it ourselves.  This goes doubly so when it comes to content that the Korean Devs may want to cover in the future themselves.  If we went and gave a definitive version of our own on some matter and then the Devs later on created content that contradicted it, that would be very problematic.  Nobody likes having to do retcons.

 

The most I can really offer is general lore information based on older content documents from the game's development.  The Yun are effectively the Elves of Blade & Soul - you'll even find some older concept art of them with very long, protruding ears still floating around the internet.  They don't originate from the same region as the other races and there's even indication that they may be from an entirely different realm, like some of the various spirits and monsters of the world are.  There is indication of interracial relationships and breeding in EN1 background dialogue, such as NPCs showing attraction to other characters not of their own race, or even a few married couples from time to time.  So, while there is no canon information behind how the Yun breed, one plausible theory is simply that any offspring born from a relationship with a male from one of the other races is simply always a Yun due to some innate supernatural aspect of their biology.

 

Fun little factoid - if you look into the game's coding in regards to costumes, the Yun are actually noted as not having a gender.  Costumes all have designated item ID tags indicating the race they can be worn by and either M (male) or F (female).  All Yun costumes, however, have the tag N (neutral).  In the past, I actually idly pitched an idea to the devs of allowing character generation for Yun characters to be more ambiguous in regards to gender rather than being strictly feminine in appearance, but that never really got any traction.  Overhauling the whole character generation and costume design would be an absolutely tremendous undertaking, after all.

I'm gonna go with phoenix style rebirths. Like, maybe when a Yun reaches the end of her life cycle, she just gets reborn as a different, separate entity? Would be pretty in line with the whole Phoenix based theme for them.

 So they are the eternal beings and as they wander through the time and space they happened to visit BnS realm. Unaware of death nor aware of life, they do not breed as there is no need to, they simply exist. Thus they continue their endless march throughout the universe, hoping for... well, who knows?
