Argh, can't find something

So I'm working on my campaign setting, the big one I've been toying with for years and years, and I'm writing the new revision from scratch and the basic ideas.

I wanted to use nodes and ley lines in the setting, and am at the map drawing stage. Problem is, I can't remember what book I read about the mechanic for nodes and ley lines in. I remembered FR having node magic, but that's that Underdark earth node type stuff, with nothing on ley lines. I have a LOT of books, and am going to begin the index spelunking tonight, but I thought I'd ask if anyone remembers where this mechanic might be.

From what I remember, it's something like:

*There are major and minor nodes, and being around them grants certain magical effects to those who know how to use the energy.
*All major nodes connect to one another, over any distance, but minor nodes only connect to majors and one another within something like 100 miles of each other.
*The connections are ley lines. Spellcasters can feel them with either a spellcraft check or an ability check (I think), and with certain feats can use the lines to travel, relay information, &c., without expending spells.

I know, it's a tiny little mechanic, but I figured one of you might have seen it. Anyone know it?
