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.

The wolves of Elkshire are rather warmly colored individuals, residing deep within their forest alongside of the elk herd. They are quite protective over their claim, and are quick to greet anyone who enters. Neutral however, but are often the one's to try and play the right cards. Particularly so some follow the Déorwine religion, finding that Elk and Deer are sacred, and thus the same rules applies despite majority not being affiliated.. Though often it varies with the current ruler sway of emotion. As certain species are unavailable to be hunted, their main course if the following - moose, boar, turkey, peasants, rabbit, and various of other small prey and fish by the stream.
