Agency is the capacity of a player or character to act meaningfully within a larp, to make meaningful choices, or to have an impact on the story. The term is also used in roleplaying games and computer games, and is derived from philosophy and sociology.[1]

Larps or stories where agency is lacking are called railroads.
