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
  • The setting and plot are member-created and staff-supported
  • The game is continuously improved to increase fun and decrease stress

Sundered Roost

A vale secluded between dueling mountain peaks, the Sundered Roost is famed for its incredible, starry nightscapes, luscious, fertile valley, and turbulent river rapids. The cliffs reach so far into the sky that rumor has it that you can even touch the stars. The mountains are armored well with hallowed caves and hidden shelves, perfect for a makeshift fortress, or a clumsy animal's demise- falling down hundreds of feet to the valley below. An abundance of elk herds feasts on the fields of grass along with snarky mountain goats, pronghorn deer, and a plethoric variety of other Cervidae. The only natural predator here is the esteemed grizzly bears.
