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

Little Balm Lake

A small lake nestled within a coniferous forest. Rocks of various sizes rest along its edges, a fantastic place to eat any fish one is skilled enough to catch. Herons are a usual sight here as well as a few large nests of osprey who often nest here. The name comes from the pleasant balmy scent that comes from the evergreen trees that populate the surrounding woods.
