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

Tundra

View

East: Russian Tundra
West: Alaskan & Canadian Tundra

These lands are primarily cold and barren with temperatures dipping low into the negatives during winter months. Summer months are just warm enough for growth to occur, though most foliage includes grasses, moss, or low shrubs. Precipitation here is low year round, though in warmer months water may saturate the upper levels of the cold ground forming ponds or other water sources.
