Welcome to Canis Major

a wolf and animal rpg (role-playing game)

Canis is a writing community for play-by-post (forum-based), freeform roleplay set in a fictional dream world in the intrusion fantasy genre. Most characters on Canis are wolves; many play elements are focused around wolves and canids, but the world makes room for a large variety of other animal characters such as dogs, horses, cats, bears, deer, and many, many more.

Our community is focused on flexibility, creativity, and collaboration. That boils down to a few important features:

  • There is no set activity requirement to write, though the game also rewards high activity
  • The setting and plot are member-created and staff-supported
  • Writing is collaborative, and so is our supportive community
  • The game is continuously improved to increase fun and decrease stress

The Elk's Crown

View
Surrounded by redwood, oak, birch, maple, and even pine trees, a serene land is painted to those who cross here. Plentiful in its bounty, streams cross the land and harbor a large herd. Within the depths is the king of them all. On occasion, one may see the grand ruler, a large-standing elk, who guards the sacred forest.

Wolves who find deep heritage within elken ties, where they are banned to hunt. These individuals reside within forests as most who hail too it, tend to be warmily-colored individuals. Protective of their claim, most are quick to greet although are neutral, and will not attack upfront but rather play cards rightly, and determine friend or foe. Elkshire is deeply tied to the Déorwine family, although they welcome most.. There is some lackluster desire in those who carry 'unsuitable colors,' but those thoughts often change with the current Queen's whim.
