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

Various mountains dot snow-dressed lands which vary in size and difficulty where the highest peaks will sometimes breach the lower clouds, separating anyone within those peaks away from the world below in their own haven. Along the mountainsides, evergreens cling to the rocks in various layers and sizes, hanging over the ledges in certain areas which offer a safe place for birds and small mammals to rest and nest.

An extension of their own families, Shiroshika strives for close bonds. They believe you do not need to be related by blood in order to be seen as family and treated as such. The royal family is tasked with putting the well-being and the safety of its civilians above all else. As a whole strive for peace, and though welcoming to those in need, are slow to trust due to past experiences that have left them dubious toward those they don't know. They have become secretive, preferring to keep to themselves as well as keeping close relations with packs with whom they have become allies, treating them as though they were an extension of Shiroshika.
