Mod (USA), short for Module, is a scene, story, or encounter in a larp.[1] The terminology is borrowed from early table-top roleplaying games such as Dungeons & Dragons. An example would be "rescue the princess" or "hunt the bandits".[2]

Mods are GM-designed and initiated, and typically employ an NPC called a "hook" to gain the interest of the characters. They may be targeted at specific characters based on their backstory, or open for any character. They may be one-off, or repeatable, for example to represent a constant threat.
