A node is a location where mana flows more freely than most other locations, which has numerous effects. A node increases experience absorption, mana regeneration, and spirit regeneration, and it has effects on various other factors in GemStone IV, such as the chance of enchanting an item. Nodes are not common locations. A common method used to find a node is the use of the MEDITATE verb, which (it is widely believed) will not cause a character to kneel and meditate should the area not be a node; however, this is actually inaccurate as MEDITATE also works in non-node areas under a sanctuary effect.
