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

Frostfang Vale

View
Within the north, there is a wall of mountains that form a fearsome guard against the hidden secrets within. A crescent of ridges, concaving inside to a haven of a forest that is like a sanctuary, for any who venture in.

What Duskguard values above all else is the peace and protection found in each other's trust, the security that only comes from true strength in leadership & numbers, and the trust of vetted & proven packmates. Duskguard sees that strength comes in all forms, and believes that all parts of the pack must be seen as vital in order to thrive. Bonded like blood, the wolves of Duskguard believe strongly in the collective strength over individual freedoms. There is strong support for everyone’s realm of expertise and pack members are encouraged to train and dedicate themselves to their skills. The pack sees all things in shades of grays and aims to incorporate this value through all state administration & judicial representation. Above all, Duskguard believes in extreme loyalty and honor that can only be earned through time and tested trials.

"When the snows fall and the white winds blow, the lone wolf dies, but the pack survives"
