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

Winterheart Forest

To the casual observer, Winterheart Forest might appear to be remarkable only for its seemingly endless expanse. However, those who have explored its fey and mystical depths will attest that it is a place quite unlike any other. Vast and ancient conifers stand like ineffable sentinels, primordial titans soaring ever skyward as if to challenge the very sky itself. Within the aegis of those moss-draped boughs, Winterheart is a place of shadowed secrets, where mystery permeates the air like mist, magic drips like dew from the lichen, and the line between dreams and reality becomes blurred.

The Pantheon is a fairly close-knit group of wolves all working together to establish themselves in this new world. The priority is that the family comes first, above any single being. The Pantheon is protective of their territory and their own, but not aggressive towards others without reason. Wolves from all walks of life are welcome as long as they aren't detrimental to the inner workings of the pack. It is expected that everyone will contribute regardless of their status and ensure that everyone is taken care of.
