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

Blackwood Reach

The Reach makes up most of the misty lands. Shrouded in a constant thick fog, sun rarely ever reaches the forest floor despite the canopies being barely present above. The forest is mostly quiet except for the random rare bull elk call that breaks through the eerie silence.

Vicious, and merciless; the Nightwalkers are a group akin to a mafia. Those who join wish to be a part of something bigger, better, than standing alone. Their goal? Take over as much land as possible by force if necessary. To be welcomed as a Nightwalker means you have accepted to be a part of their "family", and family never turns their back on family. Ever.
