Graham, your recent restriction is hard for me, I think my e-mails have been rejected simply when I included only one or two Japanese Character blanks....

No, I don't think so, either.
About Peter's idea, see here.

I rather think they and YarGan gradually got their hands dirty with Dark Sorcery exiled from their Unknown homeland. About the original Blue People of Pelanda, see Entekosiad p.49-53. I think they had very mixed origin.
Perhaps some of sorcerers mated with Deep Ones with Cthulhu Myth sense and got blue skins....IMHO.

YarGan also came Pelanda over Great Barge and killed Blue People King Oronin. Maybe he welcomed his former relatives.

Rather I think King Blue got blue skin when he contacted the Demon Erstoro, (later it was renamed "Ganesatarus" by HQ or something magical vagueness.)

Maybe it is the coincidence by chance, simply. In Glorantha, something might turn "Very Evil" into blue....and let them into Hell. Nick Brooke told so in Glo Con #4.
