Are the NPCs going to walk around aimlessly around or just sit there until you talk or interact with them? I think it would be cool if the NPCs would help or if you have a buisness they'd come in a give you some customers.
P.S. I have never played any other MMORPG before like Everquest etc. so if this is obvious to you, it's not so obvious to me:D

Friendly NPCs might move around and talk, but it's unlikely that they'll buy anything or do anything other then wander and emote. It's just too much server code for such a little thing. We might see it in some 4th generation MMORPG's, though, but there aren't any of those in developement yet.

(WoW, SWG, etc, are 3rd generation MMOG's, AC, EQ, DAoC, and AO are 2nd generation, and UO and Meridian are 1st generation)

You can hire ncp shoskeeps for your shop, and they work there will you are away ...

Beside that, I think that certain npc (such as the vips) have their own agendas ...
