Harry Pptter Game Request Using Adapted 5e DND rules
Is there any DM willing to run a Harry Potter rpg game using the rules outlined in the link below?

https://www.gmbinder.com/share/-LsXE64qLDdLgBczM2kA

May I also use this character? I like this character and I think he may an interesting and intriguing additiom to the game itself. Yes it is based on a horror movie character from the Friday the 13th movie franchise and in fact it is the same character the franchise is known for with a few modifications with a history to explain everything.

Name: Jason 'Jay' Voorhees Jarvis
Other Alias: J.J.
Age: 11
Blood: Half Blood(mother was an American witch)
Hair: Red
Eyes: Brown
Height: 2'7"
Weight: 143 lbs.

Description: JJ is of average height and weight for an 11 year old boy but is slightly athletic and somewhat rugged looking. He tends to where jeans and tshirts of bright colors and has a somewhat slovenly, laid back appearance to him. Even when he wears his robes. He is not necessarily untidy but he seems to avoid frivolity and primness most of the time, preferring to not stand out in that way and showing the more normal, non descript laid back approach. Occasionally when he is thoughtful or worried he has a habit of stroking the left side of his head out of habit. If one looks more closely you might see a very faint scar running along there.

Personality: JJ is a thoughtful, quiet boy with a bookwormish nature and a kind heart. But this meek exterior belies a very courageous and passionate person with strong morals and values. He is still a force to be reckoned with and can be very stubborn and set in his ways. He also has a dark, somewhat convictive side that is often ruthless and unyielding that he for the most part keeps in check. This can lead him to being very harsh and scathingly critical of others who he feels have done him or any innocents harm without justification. His sense of justice is still extreme and vengeful but he has learned to mellow out and learn to hold back. Just that old habits die hard.

House: Gryffindor
Spellcasting Technique: Willpower
School of Magic: Jinxes, Hexes and Curses
Background: Groudskeeper
Skills: Athletics, Intimidation, Magical Creatures, Survival
Feats: Martial Artist
Wand: 10.5" brittle english oak with a phoenix feather core
HP: 12

STR: 12
DEX: 10
CON: 14
INT: 14
WIS: 10
CHA: 16

Background

Six years ago, the American wizarding community had had enough. It was largely debated whether or not to go after Jason Voorhees, the serial killer at Crystal Lake who had become an unstoppable supernatural killer after Tommy Jarvis accidentally resurrected hiim in 1986. For one thing they had no magical explanation to why the killer had become so indestructible and unstoppable. And it was largely a Muggle problem rather than a magical problem that seemed to be restricted to the general Crystal Lake area. But eventually it was discovered that Jason's mother Pamela was a witch. And a very powerful one at that. She somehow used her magical training to create Horcruxes out of the murder weapons she used in during the Camp Crystal Lake Massacre. So it was not just vengeance that drove her to kill the counsellors, it was to resurrect her son. It took many decades to locate the Horcruxes and destroy them. They were either stolen by others or well hidden by Mrs Voorhees. And they themselves had protective magics placed on them to make them difficult to destroy. Eventually they were successful and went after Jason Voorhees himself, now vulnerable and mortal despite his supernatural abilities. With the help of Tommy Jarvis they tracked the killer down and using powerful spells of their own managed to overpower him and cast one final killing curse to destroy him once and for all. But the result was far from expected. Instead of destroying Jason it split him into two beings. a 6 year old child and a monster, 'ghost' Jason.

With GhostJason incapacitated and in magical binding chains with close observation, it was soon realized that the child represented whatever humanity was left in Jason Voorhees. Instead of destroying Jason Voorhess they somehow wound up creating two Horcruxes of him, one representing his more human nature and the other being an indestructible killing machine. It was heatedly debated whether to kill one or the other or both. If Ghost Jason was destroyed there was a good chance that the now innocent little boy would die as well. But Tommy, perhas because he had seen so much death and destruction in his life and in part that he was not really entirely consumed by vengeance as Jason was, took pity on the boy and decided to take him in and raise him properly.

And so he did out of duty and maybe conscience and surprisingly both he and the child Jason now referred to as Jay or JJ wound up forming a father son bond that made them inseperable. Tommy was strict but fair, and never abusive. In some ways he could be as supportive and loving as Jason's mother only less possessive and more reasonable. For the next 5 years JJ grew up as a normal child. His hydrocephalus had been magically cured in an attempt to at least give him some normalcy with others. He gradually started to open up and with Tommy's help despite him carrying all the memories of his past life. He even went to school and made a few friends.

GhostJason has been magically 'imprisoned' at Camp Crystal Lake and a very restricted area of influence outside. Holding a powerful killing force with magical barriers has proven difficult at best. The barriers cannot keep people out of the area.

But at age 11 it was decided that he follow through with his wizarding heritage and attend wizarding school. But instead of going to Salem, it was decided that he would attend overseas at Hogwarts. And this is where his adventures begin!

I don't have time to run another game at the moment, but I'd be up for playing.

I'm not really into 5e but this is very intriguing. Unfortunately I can't seem to generate a readable PDF from the site. I'd really love to run this.

That worked, thanks!

I actually have a story idea where JJ would be of an advantage to the group (and a disadvantage in some other ways). So yeah no problem.

Which game are you referring to? I see several game ads in the Players Wanted form made by you. Will this game be set at Hogwarts or are you using a different system?

I haven't gotten around to opening it yet. Hogwarts would be easiest because everyone knows it.

I need to think up a name because obviously, Harry Potter won't be around :-)

Oh I am sure you will think of something. Looking forward to it. A few ideas about the character I would like your opinion on though.

1. How familiar are you with the Friday the 13th horror/slasher film franchise? Any tips on how I could build on what I have already come up with? Will GhostJason play a part in the story, though most likely very small since Hogwarts is located in England('the other side of the pond' in a manner of speaking) and Crystal Lake is in New Jersey in the United States of America!

2. Is it possible for J.J. to have run ins with former survivors of his murderous rampages in his previous life? It is possible for Trish, Tommy Jarvis' older sister to be aware of JJ and who he truly is, and maybe Ginny Field from Friday the 13th Part 2, who studied child psychology could hold the position of school counselor at Hogwarts and also act as a sort of spy/guardian/mentor similar vein to Remus Lupin was to Harry Potter along with her other duties. From what I have seen from Part 2 she seems like a character that generally does not hold grudges and assuming she knows all about J.J.'s full history and that he is not GhostJason by any means of the imagination thanks to Tommy's paternal guidance and support, probably might take a proactive approach to helping him find redemption and building a better life for himself.

3. Jason has never struck me as a 'mongoloid'. He's no math genius mind you but he is FAR from unintelligent. If there was one thing about Jason in parts 2 to 4 was that he was a very thoughtful and patient killer. That is why he was in my opinion the most dangerous and lethal in Parts 2 to 4. It did not matter how intelligent or self aware the victims were, you just could not see him coming until it was too late. He picked his spots, assessed and adapted to the environment and circumstances, and was willing to wait his victims out and strike at a more advantageous and less noticeable time. This requires intelligent thought and careful planning. This is why I hate the way he was portrayed in parts 6 to 8. At this point he is an indestructible supernatural zombie who is simply plowing through victims with abandon. The only reason why he is not noticed sooner is because his victims are too stupid or sex crazed to start to realize when people start inexplicably disappearing for no apparent reason.

4. That being said I do not think that JJ would be a bad student and may even be above average. With his hydrocephalus gone and not impairing his mental learning abilities, with his intelligence, though not necessarily exceptional, he might thrive academically. He can read as shown in part 8 when he hits the fire alarm to cause chaos and make more vulnerable potential victims(another indication of intelligence and forethought) and one would think that he could write as well if he did not know already possibly learned in muggle school. I am thinking that given that he lived in the forest most of his life Herbology and Care of Magical Creatures would be among his strongest subjects as well as Defense Against the Dark Arts naturally.

Please tell me what you think? How you choose to run your game is entirely up to you of course. Just throwing out ideas. :)

I watched the 1st ages ago. I fell asleep during the second (seriously, no idea why but horror makes me tired) Not much for horror myself. I notice the references, of course.

He could easily have had run ins with former survivors,although after his experiences, it is likely he would not recognize them, or remember that much from what he was made before. I don't want to drag too much in because focusing on one character too much could cause issues.

We can find this out once the game is opened, I'm working on it. Should be looking for players ina few hours.

I'd be up for playing if someone were to GM.
I'm really looking forward to it since I'm trying to run a Harry Potter RPG for my daughter but I kinda ran out of ideas...
Plus it's a great setting.
