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.

Built by a Queen with an elk heritage, where they are banned to hunt. Residing within forests, a group who seeks peace within their own power and strives to expand beyond their borders. Noted to mostly be warmly-colored individuals, they are protective of their claim and quick to advance in a neutral greetings ; often playing the cards rightly if the other is eligible to join or not. Tied with the Deorwine religion, there is a lackluster and distaste to those who do not suit their standards, and may be subjected to discrimination.
