Yeah, they do show up in the first one.  Rare Peter and Valentine
scenes...

I'm trying to figure out if that's actually true.  If who wasn't a
real player could be hidden well enough (as in, I don't know a
player, so are they a stranger or a mob or some admin controlled
puppet, or ...) and the pressure could be kept less than blatant
(shopkeepers and bar patrons making comments, say) it might work
even if exposed...
