Not to be confused with Mod John C.

Mod John A was a senior content developer at Jagex. He is best known for creating the entirety of the Dorgeshuun quest series and its characters, as well as curating the latter half of the Rise of the Red Axe quest series following Mod Vincent's departure. Throughout the development of his first dwarf quest, Forgiveness of a Chaos Dwarf, he wrote a series of seven development diaries about it. He has also written two diaries about his concept of the Signature Heroes and One Piercing Note, another well known project of his. In August 2014, he left The Guardians and Jagex following the release of the Elf quest series finale, Plague's End, and the post-quest dialogue for the Red Axe finale, Birthright of the Dwarves.[1]

He starred in the third and fifth episodes of Above the Lore.[2][3] Throughout April and June 2013, Mod John A ran a forum thread in the suggestion forums, asking the community to help him with writing the finale of the Rise of the Red Axe series, by suggesting story elements, reminding him of things from previous quests that could be forgotten, etc.[4] He did the same for the finale of the elf quest series in 2014.

On 28 June 2013, he participated in a lore Q&A session, along with Mods Osborne and Raven.[5] In April 2014, he joined Mods Osborne, Raven, Stu, and Rowley for another such Q&A.
