The Account Node (also called the Account Root Node, Player Account Node, or _playerAccount) represents a particular player's account in an area server. It is a root node that is instantiated from the _playerAccount class.
The HE Admin system allows for specific Account's to bypass the normal Character Selection and Character Creation process to allow access to the world in the case of a catastrophic failure during the game-specific login process.
In earlier versions of HeroEngine, the account node was player_account
As of Version 1.21, it has been renamed to _playerAccount.
