The target of this spell is cursed with a complete inability to speak. The spell is automatically ended, however, if the victim hears someone speak his name. The spell ends if they are attacked.
If the target is threatened or in a dangerous situation such as combat, they may speak normally but take 2d4 damage as they feel an invisible fist punch them on the arm, which ends the jinx spell. The target is aware of the jinx effect, and creatures intelligent enough to cast spells easily realise that they can speak as a free action to trigger the hit before casting their spell.
Jinx does not prevent the caster from using forms of nonverbal communication, such as telepathy or writing.
