Interactive Conversations in an MMOG

Tired of one-dimensional NPC's that are perfectly content to yap at you all day long without letting you get one word in edge-wise? Me too. In fact, I'm hopping mad about it.

I mulled it over, thinking I was missing some obvious design flaw that would prevent it from working in an online setting, but I can't see any... and the more I think about it, the more my discontent and disbelief that we don't do this grows. The feature is simple:
