Non-Combat use of Charm Person
So, this is always something that I have wondered about but never gotten the hang of doing. Has anyone out there used Charm Person to any effect other than to turn an enemy combatant into a temporary ally?
For me, I just think that this spell could be useful in loads of ways. I would "Think" that it could be used to get a more favorable rate in stores. I think it should be useful in disarming situations where a thief got caught pick-pocketing. I would imagine it would be useful in dealing with potentially aggressive (but not hostile) NPCs?
I suppose that it could be used to turn a Combat monster green SO that you could pick his/her pocket, but that seems so very situational.
Also, if used on an NPC that for some reason turns hostile, if you charm them and then leave, do they remain hostile when you come back? I would imagine so, but should it really be that way?
Anyone else have ideas? Or done any of the above?
