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. 

They used kung-fu as they do with everything else in this game.

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

Yes an no. If you took "race" literally then crossmating can occur but most MMOs use the term "race" when they actually mean "species" and crossmating cannot naturally occur between species.

There are a lot of stories (including mythology/folklore) where crossmating is possible, but where the females/males of one race would always result in a specific result.

 

Like one series, halflings would ALWAYS produce females of the other race unless the other race was human (essentially the only way to make more halflings was halfling+human).

 

One lore suggests that one race would always produce more of their race regardless of what they bred with, but that the offspring may have certain traits from the original.

 

One series, one race would always produce more of their race, but the offspring would have the abilities of the original as well as some personality traits of the original.

Yes, that's all very nice but without an established lore you can't just assume different species can mate. Halfings exist in other fantasy worlds because we're told they exist. You don't just see a Lyn and a Gon and assume they can have children together...

Obviously Lyn and Gon can mate.

 

My point was more that since the lore doesn't say they don't, we can't assume that they can't either.

Going off the story, Jiwan is Yun. And Iksanun says that he tried to avoid attachments to people (clearly failing, because he ended up having a son), unlike Jiwan and Mushin. He suggested that this was what led to their deaths. So this could mean that Jiwan had some sort of romantic relationship.

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

Technically all the "race" you played are humans in slight variation.  With the exception of Lyn their difference is no different than being in a different ethnicity. They are more of an arch-type than actual race.

 

The other idea is the same of a Amazonian race. If you look at Asian lore like the Snow princess, they reproduce through human male, but only gives birth to female. This might be the same concept.

try reading about Asari (all female race) reproduction from mass effect too , interesting idea a bit more scientific though .

I volunteer as tribute to help the Yun reproduce. They can do the brain shenanigans like Liara, I don't mind.

Perhaps they craft statues of themselves, as they appeared when they were younger, and when they have aged to a certain point swap their life essence from their aged body to the statue and animate it. Thus perpetuating an immortality cycle.
