A downloadable game

Perhaps you were born a Muggle, and the whole Wizarding World is new to you. Or perhaps you've always known an owl would arrive with your acceptance letter. Either way, you're now a student at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft & Wizardry. You and your friends will have to summon all your bravery, cunning, intellect, loyalty, and magical skill to face the forces of darkness, uncover the secrets of Hogwarts Castle, and outwit your rivals in other houses. And maybe even attend a class or two.

Hogwarts: An RPG is a free tabletop roleplaying game that lets you create collaborative stories in the world of the Harry Potter books & films.

The game uses simple rules, based on the Powered by the Apocalypse system, that let you get right to what’s fun about being a young witch or wizard at Hogwarts. Cast spells & brew potions, sneak around after curfew, play Quidditch, stand up for your friends & confound your rivals, and unravel mysteries in Hogwarts Castle. Learning the rules is easy & creating a character is quick, but the game supports long-term stories with lots of fun twists & turns.

Everything you need to create your own Harry Potter story is in one 17-page PDF.

This is a wonderful little game that captures the heart of Hogwarts really well. Recommended for that alone - but it also does something really unique in PbTA design with its mystery mechanic - you could use this to port all sort of mystery games in a "play to find out" sort of way.
