Snake Charmer’s Flute

Price 26,000 gp; Slot none; CL 17th; Weight 3 lbs.; Aura strong conjuration and enchantment


Two distinct songs are etched on the entwined pipes of this flute. Playing the first creates a soothing, rhythmic melody that lulls snakes and serpents into compliance.

Crafted from teakwood and etched with serpents, this flute hisses a dual tune from twin pipes, one very melodic and the other an accompanying drone.


This tune grants a +5 competence bonus on Handle Animal and wild empathy checks to influence snakes as well as snakelike animals and magical beasts. If the musician lacks the wild empathy class feature, she can still use this song to influence snakes and snakelike creatures as if she had wild empathy, applying only her Charisma modifier and the flute’s +5 bonus to the roll.

The second song of the snake charmer’s flute can be performed only once per day as a full-round action.

When used, it summons an advanced giant anaconda. This serpent obeys the musician’s mental commands and remains as long as the user continues to spend a move action each round maintaining the tune, up to a maximum of 3 minutes.


Cost 13,000 gp; Feats Craft Wondrous Item; Spells dominate monster, summon nature’s ally VIII
