Amnesia (D)

You forget things and places.

Whenever you learn a new secret, there's a small chance you forget a secret.
Whenever you return to a map you previously visited, there's a small chance you forget the layout.

Amnesia (D) is a mental defect that causes the player to occasionally "forget" certain information.

Whenever a player with Amnesia enters a zone they're previously explored, there is a 5% chance that they will "forget" the layout; this marks any explored tiles in the zone as unexplored, making it as if the player had never been to the zone before. The player can't forget the layout of a zone they've been to within the last 2 rounds.[1]

Additionally, whenever a player with Amnesia learns a new secret, there is a chance they will "forget" a random secret that they've already learned, causing it's entry to disappear from the Journal.[1] If the player forgets a particular secret, they can relearn it from it's original source or any other source that can grant that secret; for example, a particular forgotten secret discovered from looking at a a painted item can be relearned by looking at that item once more.
