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

Skelmir's Pass

View
Otherwise known as Trickster's Pass, these paths lead to the rumored rewards, though what specifically varies from tale to tale. From the base, the climb appears easy, though as one continues, the trails grow more confusing and challenging. Many dangers await and it is not uncommon for someone to go missing or end up mysteriously back at the start. Some say the climb is more akin to a maze than a mountain with paths ever-changing. Aside from glory seekers, it is also common for folks to come to train their bodies and minds.
forming

Inspired by Japanese royalty. Shiroshika is a pack that strives for peace by any means necessary. After having her trust betrayed multiple times and feeling that the pack is no longer safe, Reiko obsesses over the safety of her family and of the pack. They have grown secretive, opting to keep to themselves and make newcomers earn their trust before being welcomed into their ranks. Until further notice, Shiroshika will no longer be accepting "soft characters" since they are more in need of warrior/guardian types. Anyone who would like to join SS but gets turned away will be given other packs to seek instead.
