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

Auroras' commencing travel plan was now entirely destroyed. What with the worry of her absent companion, who had not been seen in close to a second rising new moon. She, also, now had to take numerous intermittent breaks to allow the novice young traveller with her to rest and recuperate. The balletic swan would not complain though, wanting to dote upon the young orphan always. With each passing day, no matter the haughty façade the juvenile would adopt daily, Aurora would continuously cosset them, finding it all truly endearing. 

Keeping her pace to one of a sloth, they came across what looked like the initial stages of a thawing waterfall. Come spring and summer, it would surely boast a tremendous show of beautiful force, but as though literally frozen in time, only beads of water dripping from the extremities gave it away that warmer temperatures were now gradually riser in some of these regions. 

She was at the base of it, arching her neck back to assess the height, and questioned how the duo was to reach the confines of the woodlands that the waterful curtained behind it.

           tagging @Umbra to join if she wishes, but open to any!

Somehow, one way or another, Umbra was now tagging with Aurora. It wasn't like she didn't have anyone, she could go back! Maybe, not like anyone was there though.. She also didn't trust Aurora, she just seemed guillible somehow, and already thought about any of the gangsters that would come forward. Even if she was young, she could still smell the sign of males being near, and was quick to glare in any direction she saw of them.

Somehow named herself the others protector.

"Why does it look like that?" She asked Aurora, looking over to the frozen waterfall.

'Quite the spectacle, is it not?', her voice echoed around them as though into a cave of oblivion; her compliment gracefully poised to the glazed waterfall. Admiration danced within her eyes, as she caught glimpses of shards that mirrored traces of sunlight. It was beautiful and wasn't something you came across on a daily stroll.

'In these territories, temperatures reach an exceeding low. And this waterfall has fallen victim to it. Yet if we wander close enough, you will be able to see it has begun to thaw. The light has begun to draw it back to life', she looked down toward the pup, 'Which means Spring is welcoming us now'. 

She took a few moments to indulge in its beauty, before casting a glance behind them for any other scouters. She needed to figure out their next move to get to the top.

Umbra doesn't remember much in winter, due to be born in winter. Her life of the past tended to flash by rather quickly, and stored within the back of her mind with memories that couldn't be accessed, due to being so young. Her head tilted to one side as Aurora explained, that low temperatures was the cause of so. It would mean that soon it would thaw, as the other pointed out if she got closer ; and she did, she could see.. Droplets, happening, the crackling of ice that would soon completely topple to the rushing of water.

"Is spring good?" she asked.

A flash of reminiscence of stronger sun rays warming up the nethers of her fur, of when trees smiled, and when hunting days became less of a task. Flowers were aplenty during the spring, and this thought brought her back to her home, her haven of Lapis Nestle, of the pastel hues of lilac and blue blanketing the ground in a patchwork quilt. 

'Spring is definitely good', she half giggled at the girl's innocence, yet a warmth still bestowed in her tone to ensure no malice or mockery came from it. 'It's a time when all fauna and flora awaken from a prolonged slumber. You will start to see changes and you shall experience it'. 

Whilst she spoke, she was looking up further ahead, still seeking that path extensively used with the traffic bypassing the waterfall and climbing the hill adjacent to it. 

And she started to walk past the waterfall and onwards. There were no others around it seemed, and she needed to carry on their pursuit of higher ground.
