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

Azure Grotto

Though the ice is thick, sunlight still peers through as it is clear enough to let the light shine through it, casting the ice caves in a deep blue. The caves vary in height and depths, from small enough only for small prey - to large enough to house a bear. The caves go on for what seems like an eternity where some often get lost… never to be seen again as they lose their way.

A rag tag group who sticks together for the sheer convenience and lack of interest or ability to join anywhere else. The bar to joining their ranks is low other than just doing the bare minimum to participate (hunting, protecting borders). Promotions are only obtained by challenging those of a higher rank and winning. We are simple, we are fiery, fuck with us and you'll get burned.
