Hidden Text Formatting

Beyond those properties listed above, in the message box, players may also customize the color of their text through inserting the following modifiers before their text. For example, ^cUsertext here, would display Usertext here in a goldish yellow color. When input correctly, the modifier immediately changes the text typed afterward into the color.
