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

He was still soggy. He'd crossed the river and now was headed pointedly north towards the mountains. Despite the fact there weren't any crocodiles in the river behind him, he was still keen to leave the water behind with a similar urgency as a zebra -- he'd survived the swim and now he just wanted to get away from the scene of the crime to somewhere with more cover. His move across the realm here seemed to be less of a great migration and more of just an aimless roaming because he couldn't find a place that actually felt safe. Maybe he should go back to the watering hole he'd been at ages back... It was quiet there.

Despite being wet, he didn't look too pathetic. He was doing ok, all things considered. He'd suffered enough as a youth, but there were enough ghosts haunting him to not allow him to be a happy, productive adult. He was still wary of everyone, which didn't exactly lend itself well to joining up with a pack and prancing along being a happy minion. He'd be more likely to get bitten. He was more neutral than gloomy though.
