And I’d like to thank you all for your patience and continued support.
We had some problems this past month, but we're out from under them. An early alpha version of the remade sheets system is in open testing!

The Planar Excursion thread hints at this, but it hasn't explicitly been explained, so everyone should know because we all have access to it.
The quest is set a year in the past because, even if we fail then, we can try again until we are victorious, so it's assumed that we have successfully captured the Queen. Now, due to magic, she is forever lost to her formian hive and now a permanent fixture of House Camcarneyar, giving us the benefit of a 50 mile web of telepathy with Mindsight as a bonus. Now, while it won't track anyone with access to mindblank, it's very hard to mindblank an entire army or a small task force, so movement information of the masses will be invaluable, even if it regards other Houses.

And Mind Blank completely shuts down Mindsight, but not general telepathy. As the former is somewhat intrusive and tries to "detect things about you", while telepathy in general is rather passive.
Note: Menzoberranzan is roughly 2 miles below the surface."
Addendum: "From Underdark: Menzoberranzan.... It lies about 2 miles under the Surbrin Vale, between Moonwood and the Frost Hills. The city occupies an irregularly shaped cavern more than 2 miles wide at its widest point. The ceiling is 1000ft high, and..."
