Harry Potter-themed 20 years game!
I’ve seen a lot of games like this one and I really like them, so I thought I’d try to make a Harry Potter-themed one. I also tried to make it as LGBT+ friendly as possible. Apologies for any mistakes in my English, it’s not my first language.
Use this 8-sided dice for every roll.
First, you need to choose your and your partner’s first, middle and last names from the lists below.
First: (x), (x) or (x)
Middle: (x), (x) or (x)
Last: (x), (x) or (x)
Roll the dice for your ages.
1-2: from 17 to 19
3-4: from 20 to 22
5-6: from 23 to 25
7-8: from 26 to 28
Roll for your jobs. You may be more specific about your career. If you need a list of all the known jobs in the Harry Potter universe, you can find it here.
1: educator/researcher (Hogwarts professor [choose a subject], teacher in the Muggle world etc.)
2: athlete (professional Quidditch player [choose a team or make one up and your position] etc.)
3: writer (textbook author, journalist for a Wizarding newspaper etc.)
4: artist (actor, painter, photographer etc.)
5: law enforcement/government employee (Ministry of Magic [choose a department], Gringotts etc.)
6: health professional (St. Mungo’s Healer, doctor in the Muggle world etc.)
7: owner of a magical business in Diagon Alley, Hogsmeade or somewhere else (choose one or make one up)
8: your choice
Roll for the pets you have when you get married. Roll once for the number of pets and then once for each type. Since this is a Harry Potter-themed game, you may choose uncommon animals, such as owls, toads, phoenixes and magical creatures. If you’re not an animal lover, you can skip this part.
1-2: one pet
3-4: two pets
5-6: three pets
7-8: five pets
8: your choice
Roll for the country where you live. You may choose the city.
If you and/or your partner went to Hogwarts, roll for your Houses.
Write a brief description of yourself and your partner and the year you got married. You may also describe how you met them, your proposal, your wedding, your honeymoon, your first house etc.
Just a couple of things before you start: if your children go to Hogwarts, you may write the house they’re sorted into (you can choose or use the dice) and when they turn 17 and graduate from school, you can write what their profession is (again, you can choose or use the dice). Also, if you’re playing with a same-sex couple or if you’re currently single and you get the “unplanned pregnancy” life event, you may decide to adopt a baby instead (you can choose gender, age and the country they’re from). You can have as many children and pet as you want! When the game ends, write down a list of your family members and the pets you have/have had.
If you decide to have a child this year, roll once for the number of children you have, then roll again to find out the gender (odd number = boy, even number = girl) and one last time for the name and middle name. If you don’t conceive/have a miscarriage, go to life events.
1: one baby
4: one baby
5: you don’t get pregnant
8: one baby
1: first name from (x) or (x); middle name must start with the same letter as last name
2: first name must have three or more syllables; middle name from (x) or (x)
3: first name must come from Greek mythology; middle name from (x) or (x)
4: first name from (x) or (x); middle name must start with the same letter as first name
5: first name must come from the Harry Potter series; middle name is your choice
6: first name from (x) or (x); middle name must be a unisex name
7: first name is your choice; middle name must be related to nature
8: first name must one of the names searched right now; middle name from (x) or (x)
