The annual Grue Convention is held in varying locations throughout
the Great Underground Empire, in which grues gather to discuss the
types of things that grues yearly discuss, complete with bouncers and souvenir stand.
The GUE 948 Grue Convention was held in some caverns near the Shadowland.
GUE 1066 Grue Convention, held in an underground convention center near
Port Foozle, a rather somber year due to the "adventure famine" that
had gripped gruedome in that isolated corner of the empire (as well as
human dandruff levels that were above normal for that time of year). A
paper presented that year by a prominent grue was entitled, "Surviving
the Lean Years: Is Lurking Enough?" Souvenir postcards were entirely
black, except for the same, tried-and-true slogan, "Don't forget to
writhe! -- GUE 1066 Grue Convention." In honor of the festivities of
the convention, the local theater put on a performance of "A Massacre
on 34th Street."
One of the temporary occupants of
that convention was an inquisition guard, who disguised in a grue
costume, managed to make his way in and steal a pair of glasses.
