This project is abandoned and its default file will likely not work with the most recent version of Minecraft. Whether this project is out of date or its author has marked it as abandoned, this project is no longer maintained.


This project has been marked as inactive. I've lost interest in developing it further and/or supporting it (it will be converted to an extension for HarryPotterSpells in the near future). If you have any questions regarding the project, please send me a PM (rather than commenting).

Which house do you belong in? Brave Gryffindor, kind Hufflepuff, clever Ravenclaw, or sly Slytherin? Find out with SortingHat, based off Harry Potter!

Simply type /sort, and you will be sorted!

Saving Players In Houses

There are two ways to "save" what players are in what house.

Permission Node

When sorted into a house, you the user will gain the house.<housename> permission node (i.e. house.hufflepuff).

Permission Group

When sorted into a house, the user will be added to the appropriate group (i.e. Hufflepuff). This can be used to create common rooms that only a certain house can access. Note that each house must have the accompanying permission node (i.e. house.hufflepuff in the HufflePuff group). Implemented in v1.1


SortingHat depends on Vault! I would recommend you get this plugin even if you do not intend to use this plugin.


  • Have the Sorting Hat take time to "decide", and speak to the user while deciding.
  • Add an option to save the sorted player data (flatfile)

"Issue": There is a minor "issue". Anyone with the '*' (all nodes) or /op WILL NOT be able to be sorted! This is because they will be detected as already sorted.
