Harry Potter Word Crawl Years 1-3

First off, full credits for this crawl go to the user ‘my little bird’ on NaNoWriMo Forums. I DID NOT WRITE THIS! I just found it super helpful and thought I would post it on here so anyone without a nanowrimo account can do it too! It's really super helpful if you're a little behind, especially since we're now at the middle of NaNo! Side note; this is quite a long crawl, so feel free to complete it in chunks!

“Welcome to the Extreme Harry Potter Crawl: Year One! Depending on your writing speed, pick your blood status.

Muggleborn: Slower

Halfblood: Medium

Pureblood: Faster

Galleons can be used to purchase round skips. If you don’t want to do a specific challenge, spend a Galleon in order to move on to the next one.



You receive your Hogwarts letter by owl and are completely ecstatic to head out for your first year at Hogwarts. Sprint to 100 to let out your excitement and energy.

You arrive in Diagon Alley and your first stop is Gringotts, wizard bank. Write for ten minutes. The amount of words you write will determine how many Galleons are in your vault.

Muggleborns:

Less than 100 words: 1 Galleon

100-200 words: 2 Galleons

More than 200 words: 3 Galleons

Halfbloods:

Less than 150 words: 1 Galleon

150-250 words: 2 Galleons

More than 250 words: 3 Galleons

Purebloods:

Less than 250 words: 1 Galleon

250-350 words: 2 Galleons

More than 350 words: 3 Galleons

You step into Ollivander’s wand shop. Roll a die and multiply your roll by 100. Sprint to that many words.

Finally, you’re done shopping! But before you leave, you decide that you want to purchase a pet. Write for 15 minutes as you search for the perfect animal for you. Pick one: owl, cat, toad.

After months of waiting, you’ve arrived on platform 9 ¾ and boarded the Hogwarts Express! Write to the nearest thousand as you settle into your seat and get ready for a long ride. If you need to write more than 500 words for this challenge and choose not to skip this round, take one Galleon.

Anything off the trolley, dear? Buy some sweets to help get you through the ride! Depending on your candy, find your challenge below!

Bertie Bott’s Every Flavour Beans: Participate in a Fifty Headed Hydra as you frantically try to get the taste of vomit out of your mouth.

Chocolate Frog: Write for five minutes as you chase down the frog.

Licorice Wand: Sprint to 150 words

Pumpkin Pasties: Roll a die and multiply by 50. Write that many words.

If you take the lot and complete all the challenges, take one Galleon as well. If you have a toad, you may skip this round for free.

You arrive at the castle and wait in the hall with the rest of the first years. You notice a boy with messy black hair and glasses talking with a redheaded boy, a girl with bushy hair whispering to the people around her, and a boy with pale… well, everything. Write for ten minutes as you attempt to socialize with the people around you.

Professor McGonagall escorts you and your peers into the Great Hall for the Sorting. After the Sorting Hat sings its song and several students walk up timidly, your name is called, and you sit yourself down on the stool, timid and worried about what is about to happen. McGonagall places the hat on your head, and you are sorted into your House. Pick from the four Houses- Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, and Slytherin.

Gryffindor: Are you brave enough to write ten times your typing speed in 10 minutes?

Hufflepuff: Remain loyal to your word count and write steadily for one hour with no breaks.

Ravenclaw: Calculate how many words it will take for you to write to the nearest 1000.

Slytherin: You’re an ambitious one, aren’t you? Write 1000 words in 30 minutes!

The feast is delicious! Do the Three Digit Challenge as you eat at your House table and talk with those around you, as well as your House ghost. If you have an owl, you may skip this round for free.

You’ve settled into your dormitory quite quickly and nicely, and your first couple weeks of class go well. Write for an hour as you grow accustomed to your new classes and all of the magic you’re learning.

Muggleborns: If you write 750 words within the hour, take 2 Galleons.

Halfbloods: If you write 1,000 words within the hour, take 2 Galleons.

Purebloods: If you write 1,250 words within the hour, take 2 Galleons.

On your way to Potions, the messy haired boy who you now know is Harry Potter stops and asks you if you know where Professor Binns’ classroom is. Write 200 words in 10 minutes as you try to remember where his classroom is.

If you succeed: Harry hurries to Binns’ classroom and gives you a Galleon as a thank you for your help.

If you fail: You spend so much time trying to help Harry that you are both late to your next class. Write another 200 words as you apologize to Snape and try not to lose any points for your House.

You get locked out of your common room and Mrs. Norris finds you! You run with Harry, Ron, and Hermione to the third door corridor, and you find a giant three-headed dog! After making it back to your dormitory safely, roll a die, multiply your roll by 100, and write that many words as you try to calm down. If you have a cat, you can skip this round for free.

Troll! In the dungeon! You go with Harry and Ron to find Hermione and end up fighting the troll with them. Sprint to 500, and try not to get yourself killed.

You go down to Hagrid’s hut to have tea with him. When you try his treacle fudge, your teeth get stuck together! Write for twenty minutes as Hagrid tries to help and Madam Pomfrey magically loosens the cement-like effect the fudge had on your mouth.

Months pass, and it’s Christmas morning! You receive 3 Galleons from your parents, as well as a challenge from the Weasley twins. Write 1000 words in under an hour.

If you succeed: they give you a Galleon.

If you fail: they hit you with snowballs until you’re buried under heavy amounts of snow and make you write 250 more words.

During the Gryffindor vs Slytherin Quidditch game, you get incredibly excited. Roll a die. If even, you’re cheering for Gryffindor; if odd, you’re cheering for Slytherin. Word war for fifteen minutes with someone cheering for the opposite team. If you beat them, you win your bet, and you take 2 of their Galleons. But be careful- if you lose, you give them 2 of your Galleons. A bet’s a bet.

Harry tells you that he suspects that Snape is going after the Philosopher’s Stone and you decide to go with the trio to try to get to the Stone before Snape does. But before you can even go down the trapdoor, you need to make it past Fluffy. Write for ten minutes as you lull him to sleep sneak through the door.

Oh no- you and your friends are trapped in a patch of Devil’s Snare! Hermione tells you that you need to write 250 words in five minutes in order to safely escape.

If you succeed: You make it out of the deadly plant without a scratch and even spot a Galleon on the ground. What luck!

If you fail: Hermione has to set the plant on fire to get you out alive. She thinks very poorly of your skills now, so write another 250 words to impress her.

Harry catches a flying key and opens a large wooden door. Inside the next room is a giant wizard chess set. You and your friends need to replace some of the pieces and play the game. Ron takes the place of a knight, Harry becomes a bishop, and Hermione takes over for a rook. Pick a chess piece and complete the challenge below!

Pawn: You know you won’t be of much use to the game and think it would be wisest to be taken out early. Complete a Fifty Headed Hydra and take a fifteen minute writing break to recover from your injuries.

Rook: You take the place of the other rook and spend the game running across the board, strategically taking out important pieces of the other side’s team. Sprint to 200 and take a five minute writing break once the game is won.

Bishop: You take the place of the other bishop and sneakily take out pawns on the other team. Write for 20 minutes and take a five minute writing break once the game is won.

Knight: You take the place of the other knight and become the wild card of the match. Write 300 words in 15 minutes until you’re taken out by one of the other team’s rooks. Take a fifteen minute writing break to recover from your injuries.

Harry and Hermione move ahead into the next room when you stay with Ron. When Hermione comes back, sprint to 300 as you run to find Dumbledore and explain the situation to him.

The word gets out that Professor Quirrell is the one who wanted the stone, not Snape! Rumors also spread of your bravery in helping Harry, Ron, and Hermione as you four went through the challenges the professors set to protect the stone. Dumbledore awards you fifty points for your courage. Write for five minutes as your peers congratulate and admire you.”

Fifty Headed Hydra: Legend has it that a user on the adult site once wrote 500 words in five minutes, and the only words they spelled correctly were “Fifty Headed Hydra”. Your challenge is to do just that. If you can, I commend you, because that's something I could never do. XD

Congratulations on completing the first year of the Extreme Harry Potter Word Crawl! Post your total word count and how many galleons you have left, and happy writing!

Here it is, the second Harry Potter word crawl! ALL credit goes to my little bird on the nanowrimo site for inventing this particular crawl. Enjoy!

You’ve been spending your summer with the Weasleys, and when you and Ron find out that Harry’s in trouble, you go with him, Fred, and George to rescue him in the flying car. Write for ten minutes as you fly home to the Burrow.

Molly has some work for you to do to help around the house. For every challenge below that you complete, she gives you one Galleon.

Fix the clock: Write 250 words.

Help Molly cook dinner: Write for twenty minutes.

Errol arrives with everyone’s book lists, and Gilderoy Lockhart’s name is written all over it. Write 3% of your current word count, as you worry that it’ll take 3% of everything you own to buy his books along with everything else you’re going to need.

Floo powder power! Floo powder power! Write 500 words in fifteen minutes as you travel to Diagon Alley. If you are in Ravenclaw, you know exactly how to use Floo powder and may skip this round for free.

If you fail: You end up in Knockturn Alley with Harry. Write an additional 200 words as you find your way back to the Weasleys.

On September 1st, you go with Harry and the Weasleys to Kings Cross Station, but you get stuck outside of Platform 9 ¾! You, Harry, and Ron decide to find another way to get to school this year… Word war with a friend for an hour during the long drive- er, flight in the Ford Anglia. The winner gets to take a Galleon from the other.

Upon your arrival at Hogwarts, you crash into a strange tree that starts to attack you! Write 300 words as you escape from the tree and take the walk of shame into the school.

It’s a miracle that you’ve arrived back at school safely, and that you weren’t expelled. Instead, your Head of House decides that you will be serving your detention with them. Keep in mind that you are not allowed to skip this round even if you have enough Galleons to do so.

Gryffindors: Write for 30 minutes as you search Professor McGonagall’s classroom frantically for the needles that Peeves decided to hide from the first years.

Slytherins: Do the Three Digit Challenge as you collect ingredients around Hagrid’s hut for Snape’s newest potions.

Gilderoy Lockhart turns out to be a babbling idiot and tells you to roll a die, multiply your roll by 100, and write that many words in order to catch all of the Cornish pixies he let loose in his classroom. Naturally, it doesn’t work, but Hermione takes care of them for you. Immobulus!

Ron is puking slugs after standing up for Hermione! Take him to Hagrid’s hut and write for five minutes as you help him to feel better. If you are in Hufflepuff, you would help Ron no matter what and may skip this round for free.

You’re invited to Nearly Headless Nick’s deathday party on Halloween night. But the question is, will you go to the party or to the feast?

If you go to the feast: Complete a Fifty Headed Hydra as you stuff your face with delicious food. You do feel bad about not going to the party, though…

If you go to the party: Write for twenty minutes as you stand around the party, bored out of your mind and wishing you were eating food at the feast. When no one is around to notice, Harry slips a Galleon into your hand and thanks you for coming with him.

On your way back to the dormitory, you discover Mrs. Norris hanging from a torch racket, somehow Petrified… and somehow Filch seems to think that you did it! Write to the nearest thousand as you try to explain to Dumbledore and Filch that you couldn’t have done it because you’re not the Heir of Slytherin.

You and your friends decide to join the Dueling Club, and you’re excited to show off your skills! Word war for fifteen minutes with a friend. The winner of the duel gets bragging rights; the loser has to write an additional 100 words.

Merry Christmas! Your plans for the day: sneak into the Slytherin common room using Polyjuice potion to interrogate Malfoy and ask if he’s the Heir of Slytherin. Write 400 words as you impersonate a Slytherin student by taking the potion. If you are in Slytherin, you already have access to the Slytherin common room and may skip this round for free.

Harry approaches you, Ron, and Hermione and tells you that Hagrid very possibly could have opened the Chamber of Secrets when he attended Hogwarts. You’re not sure if you believe him, so write for fifteen minutes as Harry explains his logic to you.

As you’re sitting in the stands waiting for the Gryffindor vs. Hufflepuff Quidditch match to start, Professor McGonagall announces that the match is canceled and that you need to head to your common room immediately. Roll a die, multiply your roll by 100, and write that many words.

The news gets out that Hermione and a Ravenclaw prefect were Petrified, and you, Harry, and Ron decide that it’s time to talk to Hagrid about what happened in the Chamber of Secrets. You have to hide underneath the invisibility cloak when the Minister of Magic arrives and takes Hagrid away. Write for five minutes after he leaves while you wait to see if the coast is clear to head back to the castle.

During your Herbology class, you spot a trail of spiders heading out the door. That night, write 3% of your current wordcount as you follow the trail and nearly get eaten by Hagrid’s giant spider, Aragog. If you are in Gryffindor, you aren’t fazed by the terrifying spider and may skip this round for free.

There’s been another message left by the Heir of Slytherin, and this time, Ginny’s been kidnapped. You go with Harry, Ron and Lockhart into the girl’s bathroom, where you discover the entrance to the Chamber of Secrets. Write 300 words as you go down into the chamber.

It’s lucky that Ron broke his wand at the beginning of the year- when Lockhart tries to perform a Memory Charm on you, it backfires on him! He’s the one who loses his memory, plus it causes a part of the ceiling to cave in, separating you and Harry from Ron and Lockhart. Write for twenty minutes as you try to get past the rubble.

It’s no use- you have to go with Harry further into the chamber. Participate in a Fifty-Headed Hydra as you search for the monster. Keep in mind that you are not allowed to skip this round even if you have enough Galleons to do so.

If you write 500 words: You spot Ginny lying on the floor and run to her side. Complete the next two rounds.

If you do not write 500 words: You hear something moving behind you and turn around, spotting the reflection of a giant basilisk in the water on the floor. You are Petrified! Skip the next two rounds and take a thirty minute writing break as time passes and you wait to be revived.

You spot a young man around sixteen who Harry seems to recognize. His name is Tom Riddle, and he reveals that he’s nothing more than a memory of Lord Voldemort’s younger self. When you declare your loyalty to Dumbledore, Tom sets the basilisk on you! Write for 45 minutes as you try to defend yourself and avoid the basilisk’s gaze.

Fawkes flies down into the chamber with the Sorting Hat, and when Harry puts it on, a sword falls out of it, which he uses to kill the basilisk. You take one of the basilisk’s fangs and stab the diary. Write 100 words as the memory of Tom Riddle disappears.

After you get out of the hospital wing from your injuries, the year quickly ends and summer vacation is here. Write for fifteen minutes at the end of year feast before boarding the Hogwarts Express home for the summer!

Have fun!

Extreme Harry Potter Crawl: Year Three!

Summer vacation has been great, but it’s time to go to Diagon Alley to pick up your school books! Write for ten minutes as you travel to the shops and pick up all of your supplies.

You run into Harry, Ron, and Hermione, who ask you to tag along with them to the Magical Menagerie so Hermione can buy herself a pet. Much to Ron’s dismay, she picks out a large orange cat named Crookshanks. Write 300 words when the cat jumps on your head as it pursues Scabbers.

You spend your last night of summer vacation in the Leaky Cauldron with the Weasleys. Word war for fifteen minutes with a friend as you and Ron play wizard chess. The winner receives 2 Galleons from the other!

On the Hogwarts Express, you share a compartment with Harry, Ron, Hermione, and a sleeping man Hermione identifies as Professor Lupin. Harry tells you all about Sirius Black and that he escaped Azkaban just so he could kill Harry. Write 150 words as your face pales and you worry about what might happen in the upcoming year.

The train stops and the lights go out as you feel a chill and a feeling of sadness come over you. A hooded figure enters the compartment as Professor Lupin wakes up and forces it away with a charm. He gives each of you a chocolate frog to help you feel better after the ordeal is over, but you can’t eat yours until you participate in a Fifty-Headed Hydra. If you are in Ravenclaw, you recognize the hooded figure as a Dementor and may skip this round for free.

Your first class of the term is Divination, where Professor Trelawny begins class by having you read tea leaves. Roll a die, multiply your roll by 150, and write that many words as you stare at the bottom of your friend’s cup, trying to understand what it means.

Another new class you have this year is Care of Magical Teachers with Hagrid. He shows you a beautiful creature called a hippogriff, and as you get closer to it, he decides that he likes you enough to let you ride him. He lifts you up onto its back and the hippogriff takes off, flying all over the school grounds. Write to the nearest thousand as you hang on for dear life and enjoy the magnificent scenery. If you are in Hufflepuff, the hippogriff takes a liking to you and you may skip this round for free.

Professor Lupin proves to be the best Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher you’ve ever had. He takes you to the staff room, where a boggart in the wardrobe will turn into whatever you fear the most. Write 300 words in ten minutes as you face your fears and cast Riddikulus to turn it into something funny instead.

If you succeed: Professor Lupin is very impressed with you, and you win a bet with Ron that you wouldn’t be able to do it. He gives you a Galleon.

If you fail: Professor Lupin insists that you try again. Write for another five minutes as you perfect the spell, this time perfectly executing it on the Boggart.

Halloween arrives, and you’re able to go to Hogsmeade with Ron and Hermione. Write 3% of your current word count as you load up on tricks from Zonko’s and treats from Honeydukes.

The Halloween feast is delicious, and as you return to your dormitory, you hear the news that the Fat Lady was attacked by Sirius Black. Your Head of House escorts you to the Great Hall, where it appears that the entire school is having a sleepover. Keep in mind that you are not allowed to skip this round even if you have enough Galleons to do so.

Gryffindors: Write 350 words as you have to repeat yourself, explaining what happened.

Hufflepuffs: You get hungry in the middle of the night. Write for twenty minutes as you sneak off to the kitchen and grab some food.

Ravenclaws: No one is going to stop you from studying for your Transfiguration exam tomorrow, not even Sirius Black. Write for thirty minutes as you try to study over the noise of the students around you.

Slytherins: You decide that you want to find Sirius Black yourself. You sneak out of the Great Hall and try to find him, but Snape catches you. Write 500 words as he lectures you on your way back to bed.

At the Gryffindor vs Hufflepuff Quidditch match, you can’t see the Dementors on the field but you can feel their presence. Write for fifteen minutes as the game ends abruptly and you hurry off of the field trying to get away from the Azkaban guards.

On another trip to Hogsmeade, Harry sneaks out of the castle to join you, Ron, and Hermione. You go to get a drink at the Three Broomsticks when you overhear McGonagall, Flitwick, Hagrid, and Cornelius Fudge talking about Sirius Black’s relationship with the Potters. Write 200 words as you sit in your seat, terrified that they’ll find you eavesdropping on them. If you are in Slytherin, you are an excellent eavesdropper and may skip this round for free.

Christmas morning arrives, and you spend the day with Harry, Ron, and Hermione playing Exploding Snaps. Your present from your parents arrives, and it’s very intricately wrapped. Write for fifteen minutes as you try to get it open. Your gift depends on how much you write.

Sirius Black breaks into Hogwarts again, this time attempting to attack Ron in his bed after finding a list of passwords to Gryffindor Tower. Roll a die, multiply your roll by 100, and write that many words as you spend another sleepless night in your common room.

The Quidditch final arrives: Gryffindor vs Slytherin. Roll a die; if your roll is even, you’re cheering for Gryffindor, and if your roll is odd, you’re cheering for Slytherin. Word war for twenty minutes with someone cheering for the opposite team- the winner gets to take one of the other’s Galleons!

Your Easter holidays are spent doing homework and nothing else. Write 400 words as you spend several all-nighters studying for your exams.

On the last day of exams, you and your friends decide to go visit Hagrid to give him some support before Buckbeak is executed. Participate in a Fifty-Headed Hydra as you’re forced out of Hagrid’s hut and watch the execution. If you are in Gryffindor, the idea of death doesn’t scare you and you may skip this round for free.

You and your friends spot Scabbers on your way back to the castle, and Ron is dragged under the Whomping Willow by a large black dog! Write 300 words as you, Harry, and Hermione struggle to get underneath the tree.

You follow the passage underneath the Whomping Willow and end up inside the Shrieking Shack. There, you’re met by Sirius Black and Professor Lupin. Write for ten minutes as they explain that Sirius was innocent, and that Peter Pettigrew was the one who betrayed Harry’s parents and killed all those people.

Peter Pettigrew turns out to be an animagus, and Ron’s pet rat. Write 350 words as Lupin forces Pettigrew to turn back into his human self.

On your way back to the castle, Lupin begins to transform into a werewolf! Write 400 words in fifteen minutes as you flee to the castle.

If you succeed: You make it to the castle and start to tell Cornelius Fudge and Snape what happened, but they insist that you’ve been Confounded and need to visit the hospital wing.

If you fail: You get caught up by Lupin and have to flee him as well as the Dementors who show up for Sirius. Write an additional 200 words.

You, Harry, and Hermione are the only ones conscious enough to stand up for Sirius to Dumbledore, and while he believes you, he instructs Hermione to use her Time-Turner to save Sirius. Turn back time and complete three of the previous five challenges again! (Beginning at the Fifty-Headed Hydra and ending at 400 words in fifteen minutes.) Keep in mind that you may not skip this round even if you have enough Galleons to do so.

You and your friends manage to save both Sirius and Buckbeak by using the Time-Turner. There is no celebration of your bravery this year at the end of year feast, but you still enjoy yourself nonetheless. Write for ten minutes as you say your last goodbyes to your friends- until next year!

This one is a real challenge, so I hope you enjoy! ♡
