Aura of confusion

|Effect||Annoyingly difficult to read diary entries|
For April Fools Day 2012, three new auras were introduced to the game: auras of confusion, concussion, and contusion, each with a slightly different effect on the diary. These auras were a success, and the three effects were all rolled together into a single aura of confusion, which has stayed as a permanent game feature.
With the introduction in September 2019 of Autumn mushrooms seasonal event, eating a mushroom became another possible way for heroes and heroines to catch an aura of confusion.
This aura causes the hero to write gibberish in their diary.
It will wear off by itself after fifteen minutes to an hour. A God or Goddess may take pity on their stricken hero and may be able to cure this aura by encouraging them.
So, a little praise, or maybe a few lightning bolts to the head, but best of all is back to the tavern for a few refreshing ales to try to mitigate the circumstances.

The diary will show text that looks like this:
Notice how the writing is not only capitalized, but also writes the R as an Я, the N as an И and the Y as a У.
Other ways that the hero might write with the aura of confusion is with everything spelled backwards:
