Through a secret door in the sewers beneath the temple district. You'll need a key, I believe called the sewer key and found in the windspear hills, but I might be wrong.

Be prepared however! Before you enter this area you'll get a hint of what you'll face there. :)

yes, the key can be looted off the corpse of Tazok, or a chest in same room as him in Windspear hills. The door this opens in the sewers beneath the temple district will lead you to an area where the hammer of thunderbolts is eventually located.

Is it ever explained why Tazok has the key and how he is mixed up in the business. I don't recall

No, there is absolutely no reason at all.

Is it ever explained why Tazok has the key and how he is mixed up in the business. I don't recall My guess:
Frikraag has been keeping tabs on you since Candlekeep. He has been ploting his revenge against Gorion. He figures Tazok would be a loyal lieutenant since hates your guts. You killed him (maybe twice) after all. A simple resurection spell has brought him back.

@ Aces - That part isn't all that strange - the question is how exactly has it come to pass that he has the key to a sewer based mind flayer colony.

The only explanations I can think of are...
1. Tazok's claim about being backed by a greater power than you have ever seen, which seems to refer more to Firkraag; or
2. Firkraag is in league with the Hidden and the Alhoon to gain power and control over Athkatla, and Tazok travels with or acts as his envoy, hence his possession of the key.

Or Tazok's body was found by mindflayers after the fight in which you killed both him and Sarevok. This happened in the upper reaches of the underdark and it is certainly possible that mindflayers followed Sarevoks progression when he tried to start a war. The Iron Throne are evil merchant and ties with mindflayers, or their knowledge of the iron throne is possible. When Sarevok died and got vaporized they raised his right hand man to help them to follow the exploits of the bhaalspawn that killed Sarvok, namely you! Seeing your capture they use the time to gain other allies who they can use against you, should you escape. From the brain they ate out of Gorion when killed when you left candlekeep, they found out he once had messed around with a great red wyrm and let this particular dragon be in the neighbourhood! Sent Tazok and some other minions to gain the help of this monster while Alhoon and the Hidden work on getting the power in the city.
Plausible? or just nuts :nuts: ;)

Hmm.. odd.. I've been over to the windspear hills, twice in the game. Once in chapter 2 and another time in chapter 6. The first time I looked around pretty much everwhere I could but second time I just whent to kill Firkraag. But this is what's annoying me: I cannot seem to be able to find that annoying key! If I could get my hands on the hammer of thunderbolts, the only thing left to find would be the girdle of frost giants strength. Please don't tell me it's found in the underdark because then I'm gonna flip.

Tazok is by the jail cells.
Turn on your web camera -- the girdle is in the underdark (now please post the video :) ). You wake the guardians of the Demogorgon statue in the Koa-Toa area. On one of the guardians is the girdle -- you also get +3 plate and a cool +4 two handed sword.

@Thunder: Definitely nuts :D
I think Jan's quest, the Hidden and the Alhoon quest were supposed to be somehow put together into a real quest and the dev team never got around to it, so they stuck they key on Tazok just to make sure you wouldn't stumble into an Illithid hive by chance (which could be pretty nasty for a level 7 party)

how do I activate the guardians?
I can't figure out how
Sat, 19th Feb '05, 8:27am
summon a creature, spider spawn for example, and have it crawl over demogorgan's statue.
Sat, 19th Feb '05, 10:52am
Summon any non-undead creature right at the feet of the northen statue. Thats the demogorgan. Monster Summon I works best.
Buff up before you do that tho. A lot. :thumb:

prepare for a hard battle though
Mon, 21st Feb '05, 10:27am
It's really that simple? Summon a creature at the statue? Darn it. Now while I put that up on my to-do list, here's another kinda noobish question: If you have an item that turns into a summon, (the spider statue for example) and turns back into a statue after battle, does it get destroyed, spirited away, eaten by invisible nishruus if the character holding it dies? Somehow it has completely vanished from my inventory.
Mon, 21st Feb '05, 12:10pm
I does completely vanish from your inventory. And reappears about 5 minutes after that creature has been unsummoned.
I can't help you with that specific problem tho. My people stopped dying somewhere in Spellhold :p
Mon, 21st Feb '05, 1:30pm
Okay so heres the thing as far as I remember: I summoned the nifty little spider (He's just so darn cute!), got into a battle and had two of my characters die due to a powerword:kill thingy. Now, I only had one raise dead spell, so I figure I'd raise Jaheira first, rested to rememorize raise dead and raised Nalia again and picked up all the stuff and left the area. I belive it is somewhere there it dissapeared. It wouldhave returned to statue form while I rested, right? But since Nalia was dead, it couldn't? If that's true, I'm gonna flip, again.

About the key?
I just thought he liked hanging out in sewers.
Wasn't he underground most of the time in BG1?
Going back and forth to the Cloakwood Mines and the Nashkel Mines. As well as in the under city in Buldar's Gate.
Sat, 26th Feb '05, 4:02pm
But, I realy doubt Baludurs Gate, Cloakwood Mines, or Nashkell mines have entrances to the underdark, they arent dwarven like Mithril Hall, so i realy doubt Ithilids could get in, unless they came in when you popped the cork in Cloakwood....
