It's quite possible that I've missed something - I have done a fair bit of searching around for information - but... is there anything more to using a snake charmer's flute than a poor man's version of herding? When I heard "snake charming", I had visions of being able to tame a pet snake - with a bard's skill, not a tamers. I had visions of taking my baskets of tamed, trained snakes along to a fight, and musically directing them to attack people (or maybe just tie their legs together). I had visions of teaching a chorus of snakes to dance to the notes of a flute. Instead, what I have is a tiny piece of the herding skill. I can tell a snake to go somewhere. Hooray. I can't tell it to attack. I can't tell it to follow me - although, it generally gets annoyed and does that anyway, with blood in its eyes! Someone, please tell me that I've missed something. Please?
