Chapter 2 - Confusion

This is the confusion check rule: To decide whether the player is confused:

if the number of entries in STM is at least STM capacity:

add "confused" to afflictions, if absent;

sort afflictions;

decide yes;

remove "confused" from afflictions, if present;

decide no.

After reading a command while the player is confused:

if a random chance of 1 in 10 succeeds:

say "Sorry, what was that? You got distracted.";

reject the player's command.

Every turn when the player is confused:

say "[one of]You begin to feel overwhelmed.[or][one of]Your head is humming with the bees of confusion.[or]Your head is spinning.[or]Things aren't making a lot of sense to you right now.[or]You wonder if you left the iron on.[or]You are having trouble focusing on the task at hand.[or]You feel lost.[or]You're trying to think, but nothing happens.[at random][stopping]"
