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

Fate’s Summit

View
A twisting jagged mountain range with occasional northern-like winds, Fate’s Summit holds treacherous cliffs and wide flat breaks, housing various types of trees and undergrowth. Clouds often hang mid-rise, obscuring the peaks from those who pass by leaving what lies above a mystery except for those daring enough to make the trek. It is rumored that those who make it to the peaks are led by fate and may experience a life-changing event.

Stemming from Nordic roots with a desire for strength and honor, Vanderfell Woods rises in the mountains. All members are required to pull their own weight, with strong encouragement to specialize in a set of valuable skills. Strict laws are set in place to ensure the safety of the pack, but those who have made their home here are treated like family driven by self-improvement and living, not just survival.
