I am playing Minecraft and am making a map for a contest. I want some lore but cannot figure out how to do two or more lines.


Let's see...

/give @p 268 1 0 {display:{Lore:[Hey look at this awesome lore!]}}

This would give you a wooden sword with a single line of lore. But putting a comma in there:

/give @p 268 1 0 {display:{Lore:[Hey look at this, awesome lore!]}}

Would separate it into two lines. Simple enough answer, can't find much to elaborate on - except it works just like other data tags, where a comma indicates another value (like: /give @p 268 1 0 {ench:[{id:16,lvl:100},{id:0,lvl:1}]} separates the id and lvl values, and the separate bundles)

    Also note: if you want to have a comma in your lore text, you need to put it in quotes. Example: {display:{Lore:["Hello, World!", "Check out my lore text!"]}} would produce 2 lines

If you want more lore then what you can fit in chat, use a command block, they can fit a lot more text then the chat bar can, something crazy like 1,300 characters or something


I think it is the Pipe symbol |.

On most keyboards it is above the backslash \)

    Can you please be more specific on what it is? There is not enough detail to make it easy enough to understand.
