-T.C. Bambara

I no longer check E2. I had my fun here, but I have moved on.
The following index is a relative list of the nodes that I have either voted on, or have found useful at one point or another. This is not intended as a total index of E2, but a list of useful nodes. If you see anything I am missing (ie- new usergroup, or a missed quest, etc.) please message me! I also would like submissions for my Top10 Nodes list.
