You pull your pants up and step out of the jail cell.

It takes a moment for the guard to pull her own pants up, stuff her mountainous tits back into her zip-up top, and grab her club... but she eventually does.

"You can't just, like, walk out of here."

There's a brief but not very tense pause.

"...Aw, who am I kidding. I'm totally fired just for breaking the bars, stopping you won't do me any good."

You tell the guard that she can come with you, if she wants. At least then she'd have something, and not just be in this boring jail waiting to get fired.

"Sure, sure," she says with a nod. "But like... we need to prove you're not the panty thief. You're not the panty thief, right?"

You assure her, once more, that you are not the panty thief.

"Cool, cool. We need to prove it, then. I'm, like, a proud warrior and junk. I can't be hanging out with, like, a criminal. Cool?"

Valley, Minitaur Warrior has joined your party. You now share an inventory with Valley.

"Oh, gnarly!" Valley exclaims. "I've, like, never been in a party before."

As per the decree of the gods, your active party can only consist of three characters--that is, yourself and two others (and sometimes, additional non-party guest characters). You can have any number of characters in your reserve party, and you can switch them out at safe locations (such as inside non-hostile towns). Different characters have different abilities and insight, so always be mindful of who might be the most useful in a given situation.

"Oh, um, and it's like broad daylight outside." Valley tips her head one way, then the other. "I might be the only guard working the jail, but I'm totally not the only guard in town. If we walk outside you're just gonna get arrested again."

ask valley if she knows where you could find a disguise.
