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

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

    There seems to be some sort of Unicode 8 problem with computer that dont default to it. The work around to this situation is to open the HarryPotterSpells.jar file copy the us-english file and put it into a folder called HarryPotterSpells > Language Files

    Everything else should generate and work properly. I am still not able to determine the root of this bug. More error logs please :) on the issue tracker thanks

    Oh, and another thing:

    Wouldn't it be better to be able to set the variables in a plugin config folder (you know, like every other major plugin), rather than have to open up the jar file, change a few things, then close it and upload it all over again?

    I'm running a 1.7.2 server with the 1.7.9 version (okay, so that could cause problems, but shouldn't - few changes between those versions). I am getting this error in the console:

    [12:14:34] [Server thread/INFO]: [HPS] Enabling HarryPotterSpells v1.0 BETA [12:14:34] [Server thread/ERROR]: Error occurred while enabling HarryPotterSpells v1.0 BETA (Is it up to date?)

    I will try using an older version (your 1.6.2) and let you know how it goes.

    Thanks for the reply, I managed to get it working for all of you having problems, you just need to load it onto an older version and copy the folder from that older version into the new version on your 1.7.10 server! The only problem is that the configuration does not seem to work, and there may be a few other bugs, but yeah, I'm running it on my server and I need it updated badly. Server: TheCitadel.ddns.net

    Hey. I'm running a 1.7.9 R.02 Bukkit server. I have the plugin when I do any commands with this plugin it says they are Unknown. Now I sort of need these because i'm running a HarryPotter server. I tried adding Vault to see if that would make a difference, I also added it with FTP to see if that would make a difference and it didn't. Any ideas? :/
