How do I make a map that players can't access until they hit a certain level, say, five?

I'm planning on making this map that you teleport to after activating a NPC, so keep that in mind.

Thanks.

Here's what I have so far. I only started on this engine and this game about a month ago so I'm still somewhat of a n00b. The problem that the compiler tells me makes no sense to me.

plotscript, BeamToGyrus, begin
if (get hero level (find hero(hero:Jim))>>5, then, begin
suspend player
suspend box advance
fade screen out
add hero (0)
swap out hero (2)
teleport to map (7, 16, 20)
fade screen in
resume player
resume box advance
if (get hero level (find hero(hero:Jim))<<5, then, begin
show text box (130)
end
end

Hi! The syntax problems in your script are firstly that you forgot the closing bracket of both if conditions, and secondly that the first 'then' block is missing its closing bracket. An if statement has the form "if (a) then (b) else (c)" where the else is optional. Numbers of opening and closing brackets must always be equal. begin and end are equivalent to ( and ). Yes, it can unfortunately be hard to figure out where you've missed one.

Also, you have one block for level > 5, and another for level < 5, but this doesn't handle the case level = 5. So I changed it to use an else instead.

Also, 'suspend box advance' apparently achieves nothing here because there are no boxes for the player to advance.

Code:
plotscript, BeamToGyrus, begin
 if (get hero level (find hero(hero:Jim)) >= 5) then, begin
  suspend player
  suspend box advance
  fade screen out
  add hero (0)
  swap out hero (2)
  teleport to map (7, 16, 20)
  fade screen in
  resume player
  resume box advance
 end, else, begin
  show text box (130)
 end
end
