Came across this today...

"The first letter from Terry arrived in March 2010, only three months after the original release," Emma told Eurogamer. In this message, Pratchett mentioned how enamoured he had become with Vilja, specifically mentioning his appreciation for the way in which she would acknowledge small gifts such as strawberries. "He also praised the modding community as a whole, mentioning how impressed he was by the effort put into mods, and how much he enjoyed using them."

Yes, I played Oblivion with Vilja and enjoyed "her" company. I knew that Terry helped to develop "her", but I didn't know how much it meant (nor that he used the Oblivion experience when writing the goblin society in "Snuff", although some aspects of Snuff's goblins - their nails and hair - seemed vaguely familiar).

Thanks, TF! :)

Thanks for the heads up. That was a good read.
