GURPS: The Wizarding World of Harry Potter

GURPS on ...


About the adventure

The world of Harry Potter is an alternative fantasy setting. Like Ars Magica, wizards keep themselves apart from the mundane world. Like Shadowrun or GURPS Technomancer or Cabal, mages have adapted to the modern world. Unlike any of these settings, the world of Harry Potter is basically peaceful and optimistic. Wizards expect make the world a better place by working for a bureaucracy or going into business, not by conquering or controlling the world. They learn spells to handle the everyday problems of life and relatively non-violent self-defense spells. Under the surface, however, the world of Harry Potter offers marvelous dramatic tension: evil has returned to Hogwarts, and it's up to the new students to stop it.
