    Default Re: Proper Reaction to Charm Person.

    In the D&D novel Spellfire, the CG Elminster suggests that wizards in general frown on those who charm often or for frivolous reasons. But the spell itself is not portrayed as intrinsically evil.

    I can agree that this would be a reasonable minimum reaction though.

    5e Charm is also considerably nerfed compared to previous editions. From "trusted friend and ally" in 3e to "friendly acquaintance". In 2e and earlier it was even more powerful than that.
