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
  • The setting and plot are member-created and staff-supported
  • The game is continuously improved to increase fun and decrease stress

She knows.  She knows what he did.  She knows what he did, and probably the reason he'd done it.  Tess can see the look on his face, picture it in her mind's eye.  She can feel the way it strikes her in the chest.  The way it rips her heart out, the way it digs in.  He'd taken her life, and in a way, she could thank him.  Freedom was the only thing Tess ever had on her mind.  Freedom... blessed freedom.  A freedom she now had.  A freedom that now had her in a chokehold.  Why did Tess feel like she was being choked?  

The weight of it was nearly too much. 

Fuck it.  Fuck it.  She'd come this far.  She had what she wanted.  By fuck she was going to enjoy it.  Though Tess's bones ached, though her muscles cramped, though everything was on fire... she was going to enjoy it.  The first order of business?  She'd enjoy a fucking nap.  Soaking wet and tired, Tess finds shelter on the ragged, stony beach.  It comes in the form of a medium-sized cave, big enough for a handful of wolves her size to seek shelter.  Maybe light a fire, even, though Tess wasn't going to go out and look for dry anything in this soggy weather.  At least it was out of the drizzle and out of the biting wind.  Heavily, Tess sat down in the sand.  Sighing.  Exhausted.

“Ah, fuck,” were the first words Orson uttered that morning.

He coughed out sand and water as he dragged himself to his feet. Paws. Paws? What the fuck?

“Fuck me,” he added aloud.

Unable—or maybe unwilling—to process this realization in any detail, the drenched wolf-dog stumbled away from the lapping of the waves. Rain beat down on him from above; his first task, it seemed, should be to find somewhere to dry the fuck up.

He lumbered towards an opening in the rock. A cave—good. Occupied—less good, but he’d take it.

“Don’t mind me,” Orru huffed to the…dog? Whatever it was. Without waiting for an answer, he stumbled inside and promptly flopped down on the ground, leaning against the wall.

“Yer ship wrecked too?” he asked. He didn’t actually expect an answer.
