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 Respite

View
Nestled at the foothills of low-reach mountains, a rocky outcropping cradles a tranquil lake. Crystalline waters do not waver; the glassy surface reflects a perfect mirror image of the sparse trees that have rooted here. The water is unusually azure, almost tropical in appearance despite the mountainous climate. The stillness and serenity truly offer a respite to weary travelers who have found this haven in their wanderings. The noise of a distant waterfall sounds somewhere nearby, and despite the calm that lingers here ... there are many secrets to be discovered if one looks closely enough.

Sequestered away in a mountain oasis, it is a symbol of new life, of new beginnings. Elysium was created for the holy, the humble, and even the sinful wishing for respite; all of those who wish to worship the gods or simply live out their time in joy and freedom. All lost and vagrant souls are welcome in the fold of this deep-knit family, bound together by goodwill as much as they are by love for one another, and those who enter their ranks are treated with fairness and respect.
