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 Nameless Mountain

View
Rising sharply into strange, jagged spires, The Nameless Mountain is a labyrinthian place of twisting trails among stones that only seems impassable and inhospitable at first glance. Thick coniferous forests rise along its lower reaches, which are every bit as broad as they are tall, and the pathways leading up the mountainside are treacherous for the inexperienced climber. No one truly knows what lies at the summit that is eternally shrouded in snow and clouds, but for the fortunate and bold who manage the climb, word has it that they are awarded views like no other.

Empyrean is a familial group, incredibly protective over their own and what they stake their claim upon.
