If this is known to Underworld questing cults (fairly logical), I would expect that many of their Quests start with getting a Guide (of some sort, either your own cults minor beings, or by coercing a local) as one of the first steps.

Also, how does this affect Alkothi, whose mundane city is also part of the Underworld? Does every Shargashi know the Underworld as part of the Enclosure and thus like I know the backstreets of my town, or is anything outside of "normal" streets and buildings something like expecting NYC residents of a decade ago to know where Heere at the Wall is (to use an example from the movie National Treasure).
