As is typical of most TriadCity commands, Nod searches for <thing> in a specific order, starting with the room you're in, then your worn or wielded equipment, then your inventory. So, if there's a box in the room, and a box in your inventory, the command "nod box" will refer to the one in the room, not your inventory. You'd need to use "nod 2.box" for the latter.

Nod can be modified with an arbitrary word of your choice. Usually you'll use an intensifying adverb as shown in the examples above. Note that Nod does not use this modifier as a search specifier when looking for <thing>. Instead Nod displays this modifier via the Game channel. Thus you can "nod enthusiastically", "nod sarcastically,", and so on. You can also "nod 18373649" or "nod toothpaste-like", so, please don't. It's up to you to get the syntax right.
