In the first village there are wild enemies in the woods, yes, but that's it. No NPCs can be slain, this just isn't the game for it.

You will be only able to slay wild enemies, undeads, and Orcs and Goblins of some sort (remember that they will look differently from other fantsy settings, namely D&D).

But of that, there'll be enough.

The world is only partially open. The very first town is indeed mainly railroading. Imagine it as a tutorial area (which it infact is, sort of).
You get access to other areas only by quests (and by travelling), but within these new areas, everything is more or less open. Enemies respawn only in limited areas, though.

And please keep in mind (this is important) : You cannot go back to some of the earlier areas. (Except with a tool/mod someone once presented in the official Drakensang forums). Like the very first village, for example.
Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction. (E.F.Schumacher, Economist, Source)
