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.

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

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.

    Please reply on this. I have a 1.7.10 server and the plugin obviously dosent work for that update, then I switched to 1.7.9 RO.2 and when I did /plugins, the plugin showed up as red. None of the commands worked, and I'm determined to figure this out. Please help! :)

    A suggestion: You should make a way for you to cast the spell on yourself :3

    Is it possible to create a Minigame out of this plugin? I've hear of other plugins that allows you to make arenas with other plugins. Do you know if this is possible with this plugin?
