# [id] [command] [message/id]
JMaL currently support following commands:
<say> - sets message for signposts and closed doors
<end> - sets message for open doors and finishes the player's path
<tbc> - sets "to be continued..." message for open doors and finishes the player's path - hints them that you're going to make more levels!
<goto> - loads a level from an itch.io comment with given id
Preamble ends with ###

# Comment Levels
To get an id of a itch.io comment you can click on a "time ago" link next to the user's name - this will navigate you to the comment page with a url similar to: https://itch.io/post/1454600 where the last part (1454600 in this case) is the id.
Doors can lead to your own levels or ones created by other people.
