Indeed there weren't.

As is, Charisma in BG1 and 2 does nothing at all. There's this common myth that it somehow affects prices etc, but it doesn't. Only reputation does. I've tried many times to pump a character from 3 charisma to 20 just to see if the prices went down, but they never did.

Also, it should affect conversations and Sorcerer spells (as you pointed out), but it doesn't do that either. It's a completely broken stat. Working charisma would be interesting. Then again, it means I'd lose my favorite dump stat (most of my characters start with as low charisma as possible).
