When moral suasion fails to win a criminal over to right conduct, the character can use mark of justice to encourage the criminal to walk the straight and narrow path.

The character draws an indelible mark on the subject and states some behavior on the part of the subject that will activate the mark. When activated, the mark curses the subject. Typically, the character designates some sort of criminal behavior that activates the mark, but the character can pick any act the character pleases. The effect of the mark is identical with the effect of bestow curse.

Since this spell takes 10 minutes to cast and involves writing on the target, the character can cast only it on someone who is willing or restrained.

Like bestow curse, mark of justice cannot be dispelled, but it can be removed with a break enchantment, limited wish, miracle, remove curse, or wish spell. Remove curse, however, works only if the caster is at least as high level as the character's mark of justice. These restrictions apply regardless of whether the mark has activated.
