Yaungol RP

90 Pandaren Rogue

Hey guys! I have a question about some Role Play character. I wanted to make a Tauren Warrior and Role Play as a Yaungol Warrior. I was wondering how I would do this and whether or not people would think I am breaking lore or just not makeing any sense. I would love some feedback!
Yours Truely,

It's a tricky subject. Since, technically, Yaungol are just a different race of Tauren, like the Taunka, or like Blackrock Orcs and Mag'har Orcs, I guess it could be easy to RP as one.

But seeing as though almost all Yaungol are hostile and are basically Tauren who love fire, it'd be a hard thing to RP as. Here are the basics:

The Yaungol lived in the Townlong Steppes before the recent Mantid attacks left them searching for new land. It resulted in them breaching the wall into Kun-Lai Summit, in which the Shado-Pan didn't want, so they started attacking them. The Yaungol succeeded, however, and made homes throughout Kun-Lai. They suffered at the will of the Sha, making them more hostile than usual and attacking nearby towns for no apparent reason. The Yaungol were ultimately defeated, and the survivors simply lived in exile. Once the Sha were slain, the remaining Yaungol made peace with the Pandaren and are (Speculation) dominantly neutral.

You'd have to read more for yourself:

Hope this helps!

It doesn't seem like it would really work. The only Yangol NPC that doesn't try to kill you only asked for your help for revenge's sake.

I don't think a Yaungol would be terribly interested in socialising with the other races. I guess a sort of Yaungol clan RP based entirely in Pandaria might work, but other than that...

What she said.

Not always true.

As I stated above, Yaungol are only hostile because the Mantid stole their home, the Shado-Pan declared war on them, and because they were corrupted by the Sha.

But now that the Mantid are at bay, the Yaungol defeated, and the Sha slain as well, any surviving Yaungol would be rather peaceful and/or neutral. But I can't imagine them picking sides between the Alliance or the Horde. Maybe if the Yaungol was a war-craving Warrior with a hate the Alliance, sure, but it's a tricky subject.

Try it out and see what happens.

Best bet is playing as a Yaungol mercenary more than anything else.

Mmm. I forget, doesn't Lorewalker Cho's story about them say they've always been rather hostile to outsiders, but very rarely leave their homeland unless a situation like the mantid invasion of their turf calls for it? Even then, they only made it into Kun-Lai, and only with a few scattered camps.

A Yangol who has been captured but not killed for some reason may also be acceptable, but you'd need a good reason to not be dead without winding up in the snowflake zone, and ideally another character who is in charge of supervising the character.

That, and presumably said Yaungol character constantly making attempts to escape, telling anyone that gawks where they can shove it, and, in general, probably be considered rather hard to interact with... Which obviously makes RPing one in that situation somewhat difficult, to put it mildly.

I could see a Tauren of the scholarly type wanting to not kill a Yangol and desire to learn about them from (I think it would be) an anthropological standpoint, as they share a common ancestor.

Yangoliolio just wants to burn Scholarlycow's books, and everything else too.

Goblins could do it for a new pitfighting experience 'Tonight only! - The Burnin' Bull from Toasty Townlong versus the Fearsome Frozen Fighters from Necromantic Northrend!'
