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 Everfrost

View
Consisting only of lush evergreens, snow is a constant here as it clings to their branches and sweeps across the lands quickly covering up any previous tracks. Caribou, lemmings, voles, arctic hares, ravens, crows, and other various snowbirds give this place an abundance of life within the shelter of the coniferous trees.

In the forever frozen forest lies Haldis, an Empire of ice and snow established by Sorina Niavalis Saxe-Salvatoré. Built upon two ideologies, (loyalty and ambition) wolves from all walks of life are welcome, so long as they are committed to building something greater than themselves. For without either, one cannot survive. They are considered a chaotic neutral pack with strong familial bonds. Opportunities lie for those that seek it. Blood does not necessarily grant status. Respect is earned through activity and good deeds. Proven to the Lady Paramount, wolves who harbour potential are cherished. Haldis holds a twist on traditional Monarchy style Hierarchy. They are ruled by The High Court. A group of close-knit wolves that perhaps, are not tied by blood-but by the bonds of kinship.
