I'm having the same issue, except it's when I speak with the Chronicler. I've been seeing other posts with the same disconnect on various NPCs. At one point I got through the dialogue with the Chronicler, then got an error (don't recall exactly). Now every time I speak to the Chronicler my first option I select I get the same error you do.
I am having the same issue, just a different conversation.
Begins with Sayrna saying, "You know how i love cute animals, right?"
If you chose dialogue option 1, it crashed. Whereas dialogue option 2 is fine. Hope they see this and fix it. Seems like there are quite a few conversations that have this same effect
