Campaign Design - Spells: Babble

Babble (from Nyambe: African Adventures)
Enchantment (Compulsion)[Mind-Affecting]

Level: Bard 3, Confusion 3
Components: V, S, DF
Casting Time: 1 standard action
Range: Close (25 feet + 5 feet per 2 caster levels)
Target, Effect, or Area: 30-foot-radius burst
Duration: Permanent
Saving Throw: Will negates
Spell Resistance: Yes

Victims of the babble spell lose the ability to speak, read, or write any meaningful language. Any attempt to speak produces unintelligible sounds, and any attempt to write produces only meaningless scribbles. The victims can still communicate using pantomime, empathy, or other means of non-linguistic communication. Due to the inability to form coherent speech, babble also prevents its subjects from casting any spells requiring verbal components.

The effects of this enchantment are permanent, but can be negated by a remove curse or heal spell.
