Gymnasium

The Mandrake Gymnasium is a concept, a field of study, and a physical location.

As a concept, the Gymnasium represents self-improvement, to the very limits of the human body.

As a field of study, it is a series of exercises designed to increase balance, flexibility, strength, and endurance.

The location itself is secret, and requires a great deal of research or a mentor to find.

Even finding the location, though, is no guarantee of entry. A grueling gauntlet of physical challenges prevents the entry of anyone who is not prepared to learn the secrets of the Gymnasium. It is said that those who pass the gauntlet are marked in some fashion.

In the early days of the House, reaching the Gymnasium was a requirement to be able to bear the name of Mandrake. With the location of the Gymnasium long lost, that tradition has been ended.
