This article is about the former audio developer. For one of the Gower brothers, see Ian Gower.

Mod Ian was an audio developer at Jagex. He initially joined the company to man Customer Support and then spent some time dividing his time between audio and content before joining and eventually heading the audio team in 2003.[1] The audio team is currently led by Mod Lord, however. For Old School RuneScape, he has composed multiple tracks on various content.

He was dismissed from Jagex in March 2021 due to allegations of sexually assaulting a minor,[2] and was subsequently sentenced in August 2021.[3][4]

Mod Ian: "[Was: Scape Original originally too long so it was made into 3 different tracks, Trinity being one of them?] I think that was Scape Main that was split into 3 tracks not original. I used to do a lot of this when I wrote tracks - various songs started as one then turned into 2 others!"
