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

Specific sizing
The size tag uses rem units rather than points or pixels. The standard font size on Canis is 16px. Rems are a multiplier of the standard font size. You can read more about them here, or you can remember that 2rems on Canis is 16 pixels * 2, or 32 pixels.
Limits: Minimum 0.85, maximum 10.

ex. Slightly big text
Copy[size=1.2]Slightly big text[/size]
There is no such thing as a standard web font. Fonts will display differently depending on the system, browser, and even monitor. You can find a list of "safe" fonts for use with web here, but keep in mind that fonts will only display if users have them installed on their system.

Additionally, Canis has exactly two custom fonts hosted on Google Fonts: 'Quicksand' and 'Roboto' (the standard font)
ex. Look I am in Times New Roman!
Copy[font=Times]Look I am in Times New Roman![/font]
This is small caps. It can't be used with the small tag

Creates a horizontal line. Usually defines an important thematic break in text.

Also takes a width optionally:

Copy[hr width=200]
Headings create title text in multiple levels, from number 1 to 6. Headings of sizes 3 and 4 have been used in this very post!
Copy[h3]This h3 tag is likely the largest tag you should use.[/h3]
Standard MyBB supports the [img]URL[/img] tag. We also support the following with the special [image]URL[/image] tag:
  • width: constrains the width
  • align: aligns the image to left, right, or center
  • circle: creates a rounded image
Copy[image width=200]https://placebear.com/640/360[/image]

Copy[image circle]https://placebear.com/640/360[/image]

Copy[image align=right]https://placebear.com/100/100[/image]

You can also force images to be perfect circles:

Perfect Circle
Copy[image perfect-circle]https://loremflickr.com/300/400[/image]
Perfect Circle with constrained width
Copy[image perfect-circle width=200]https://loremflickr.com/300/400[/image]

Wow a box
The header is optional! Boxes are not available in IC forums.
Copy[box header="Wow a box"]The header is optional![/box]
By using [row] and [col=#] tags, you can achieve more complex layouts. Each row is split into 12 units, and each column can be between 1 and 12 units. Thus, for an even two column layout:
Another box!
Copy[row][col=6][box]Whoa[/box][/col][col=6][box]Another box![/box][/col][/row]
The columns can be any combination as long as they add up to twelve.
And, if you wrap them in table tags, you can get lines between each row:
One row
Two row
Three rows!
Copy[table][row][col=12]One row[/col][/row]
[row][col=12]Two row[/col][/row]
[row][col=12]Three rows![/col][/row][/table]
and with borders:
One row
Two row
Three rows!
Copy[table border][row][col=12]One row[/col][/row]
[row][col=12]Two row[/col][/row]
[row][col=12]Three rows![/col][/row][/table]

Extra functionality
Hoverable Text
Often used for characters who speak different languages.

Copy[hover=Some hidden text :O]Click me to show![/hover]
FontAwesome Icons

Copy[fade from=#ff0000 to=orange]Wow a text fade![/fade]
