So this is a special PotterCast, in which we TRY A NEW THING for the first time in 15 years?

We really want to know what you think! Please:

- Use the hashtag #roll934 to talk about it so we can talk with you! - Get us on Twitter at @Roll934 or Facebook (also @Roll934). Website coming soon. - If you like it, tell your friends! If you don't like it, shh, we never met.

Frank Franco conceived this project and serves as the game's DM. The players are Bre Bishop, John Noe, and Melissa Anelli.
