The Monitors: Big Red Barn

The Monitors: Big Red Barn

It’s a barn. It’s a big red barn, just like the big red barns in the big books you used to read about farms, with all the animals. At least, it looks like a barn from the outside. Upon entering the thing, however, you quickly realize that wherever you are, you are not wherever the barn led you to believe you would be. Sort of like wrestling through a wall moulded of gelatin, you must make your way through the long dark corridor until you reach the Circle’s Corner. From there, you must wait. You must wait until you no longer have to wait anymore. At this time, the Swinging Leaves must transport you through to Purple Lake where you can ride a droplet of mist through the light at the Listmaker’s Ranch. At the end of the day, you will do everything in reverse, of course.

And then, when you arrive at the Listmaker’s Ranch, you will see, in the distance, just off to the right of the Listmaker’s house, a large, red, angular building. It’s a barn.
