A downloadable game

You are a student at Hogwarts, School of Witchcraft and Wizardry! Together with your classmates, you must pass your exams, win Quidditch matches, finish schoolwork, brave forbidden places, survive awkward crushes, and fight evil monsters and dark wizards!

Using questions rather than stats, you gain bonuses on your rolls based on whether your actions align with your house values! Features four houses as playbooks, thirteen basic moves, eleven optional species moves, eight optional artifact moves, and three end of session moves.

Despite being set after the conclusion of the Harry Potter books, this game can easily be used to play in any time period.

Pages: 18, including cover page!

Note: Harry Potter is copyrighted material and this game is therefore not for sale. This is a passion project created out of my love for the books and movies. If you want to support me, please consider buying one of my other games or supporting me on patreon!

I don't know how this doesn't have more comments. What a gorgeous RPG!

So many rulebooks are dull to read, but right from page one the presentation is beautiful. Clean, but interesting overview of the game, setting, and how the game works.


I absolutely love that you have SHORT text sections after each heading. Everything is modular and concise. I'm learning rulebook design right now and this is like a masterclass.

One of my very few critiques is I don't feel like Move with Strength or Grace is very well explained. When is it needed? What does it accomplish? Why does something bad happen even on a success?

The extra props are a really neat idea, and I like how interesting and varied they are.

Speaking of neat ideas, bonuses for questions instead of stats is very cool, and fits the general theme of this being a friendly and lighthearted game suitable for kids. 

Another tiny critique is that the Time to Shine section doesn't mention that it's tied to Reputation, but honestly after reading the character sheets that becomes obvious. 

Just to sneak a last one in, I also think the main black and rainbow image doesn't quite fit the ink and papyrus aesthetic of the game, but again, pretty minor in context.

Anyway, kudos on the absolutely gorgeous game, I look forward to the first time I can run it, hopefully with a group of Hogwarts loving kiddos!

(And yes, I made an itch account just to say this)


Thanks for making this!

thank you so much!! <3
