Harry Potter Spells


HarryPotterSpells is the ultimate Harry Potter plugin. Whether you run a Harry Potter server, want to add magic to an RP server, or just an admin looking for a bit of fun, this plugin is for you!

Many of these options are configurable. If you don't want parts of the plugin, open the config.yml with your favorite text editor and disable anything you don't want.


  • Provides a complete Harry Potter experience
  • Can be used on a HarryPotter server, an RPG server, or just to play around
  • Has over forty spells, with more in progress
  • Cast spells quickly with your magical wand (default: stick)
  • Teach users spells with simple commands


Cast spells with your magic wand (by default, a stick). Right-click to scroll through your available spells, and left-click to cast! Server operators can "teach" and "unteach" other players (and themselves) spells.

For spell documentation, see the Spells page on our site.

Commands and Permissions

For information regarding commands and permissions, see the Commands page on the site.


If your not sure how to setup your config or if your looking for a more detailed version of your config, see the Config page on the site.

Regarding Locale

Currently there are only two language options. We are looking for more translates and looking to branch HPS into more different languages Please message jacklin213 if you are interested

Supported Languages:

  • us-english
  • nl-dutch

Locale based Errors

Important: For anybody using a linux operating system please do the following steps to install HPS if you get locale based errors:

  1. Stop your server
  2. Download hps.rar
  3. Extract the locale folder directly into your HarryPotterSpells folder
  4. Start your server

The locale based errors should go away and the plugin should function like normal. If the problem still persists please read the support section bellow

To Do

Our entire to-do list has been moved to Trello. Anyone can vote on issues/features they'd like to see implemented. If you'd like to add an item, hop on our IRC channel (see the support section) and someone will access will add it for you.

Future Plans

We plan to add an extension system to HarryPotterSpells, allowing server owners to add various HarryPotter- and magic-themed "addons" to the HarryPotterSpells core plugin. However, to prepare for this, we have removed all code not related to casting spells. This includes some of our old features: Spell signs, SortingHat, and hooking into WorldGuard, Towny, and LogBlock. These will be available as extensions in the near future.

Special Thanks and Credits

This plugin would not be what it is today without some of these people. I (NP98765) originally asked Kezz101 to help me create this, but soon it grew into a group project. Many have spent time and effort helping to develop this. Thanks to jacklin213 for taking this project on board and keeping it updated since 1.7.x

    I mean you can create custom names for a wand so I could change the name for a wand or just make one with a name of my choice

    I love the plugin but to use on my server i would love a few additions. 1. Wands can be purchased using the format [wand] buy <Wand-Name>

    2.Horcruxes can be made.

    3.You can create custom wands with a command.**

    Please follow the instructions I gave to Rafay2005 a few comments down

    @Rafay2005: Go

    If you read the commands page there is actually a command that does that already

    /spellswitch <spell>

    So I've installed this on my private server to play around a little but apparently it doesn't work. When I type /plugins it says 'HarryPotterSpells' In &c Color-Code I'm on linux but I don't think that should be an issue since my server is hosted through a website, and not the computer itself if anyone could help it would be great
