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, though the game also rewards high activity
  • The setting and plot are member-created and staff-supported
  • Writing is collaborative, and so is our supportive community
  • The game is continuously improved to increase fun and decrease stress

The Hiraeth

Below a hollowed tower of ancient stone and moss sits a hidden gem called The Hiraeth. Simply put as its name translates: A longing for home. It is said those who enter its warm embrace are so awestruck by its lavishness that they wish to never leave, and those who do, are left feeling empty without its strength.

All Chaotic Neutral and Chaotic Evil Characters can find a home here; So long as they Obey their Viscountess.

Work Hard, Play Harder is the theme here. While the Citizens are often lacking morals they work hard for their home, but they play even harder. Indulging in what many may consider evil and wrong.
