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

Dancer's Foothills

Dancer's Foothills is a vast stretch of rolling hills that derive their name from the way the grasses dance in the seemingly ever-present breeze. They are not a particularly fascinating land but are rife with herds of buffalo and deer. A variety of plants can be found nestled within the grasses, along with rivers and small copses of trees, suitable for sheltering from the rapid weather changes that come frequently.
