it's nothing like Harry Potter besides sharing a sungenre of fantasy.

To be fair, I actually don't know of many popular books/shows that have a school meant for magic with clearly defined Colleges, beyond Harry Potter with its Houses. Especially where they essentially match personality types to your College/House.


I don't think Harry Potter is the only inspiration for Strixhaven, but its clearly a pretty big one. Mage Tower for example is pretty clearly inspired by Quidditch.

Lorwyn-Shadowmoor has long been my favorite block so I would love to see a setting for it. And it seems like one of the easiest matches as well given its tribal focus. Shame that WotC doesn’t seem to care to revisit it outside of the rogue MtGO flashback draft.

I still question why they made a mage school setting a dnd setting.
You obviously havent been watching young adult TV shows lately, dont absolutely all of them feature High Schools for Supernatural creatures of various kinds?

Strixhaven reminds me more of Winx than it does Harry Potter, but you’ve also got the school in Vampire Diaries and another in Legacies, the school in Descendents, DCs Superhero school etc etc

yeah and I hate them as a kid, and it was not that far ago I would count as kid.

Mage Tower is inspired by college football and capture the flag, but with none lethal spells, it's nothing like quadditch.

and the Colleges of Strixhaven are very different from Hogwart Houses, the Colleges are like American College system, but with magic, Horwart Houses are just dormitories with inter house competition.

look the idea predates both and it is a bad idea for a full setting, maybe a subsetting.

I seriously can't think of a fantasy property more similar to Strixhaven than Hogwarts. If there is one, I'd like to hear it. But Harry Potter has some pretty obvious influences here.

Wizards 101 MMORPG was released in 2012 and played by my son. Its the first thing I thought of when I saw Strixhaven
