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

this is not my idea of fun


First came confusion as he stumbled, his paws catching him before he stumbled. Was he going to be surprised about the weird shit that happened here, after how he had even arrived? No, but it didn't stop annoying him that his control over his own body was not always his own. Next came warmth, a stuffy warmth that made him feel sick to his stomach. He was used to the colder, more hardier climates -- not this... this whatever it was.

Strange trees that he hadn't seen before loomed over him, sounds of birds and other critters reached his ears and Ivar looked thoroughly displeased. His fur felt clammy, was that possible? Ivar narrowed his eyes in a squint as the sun came through the leaves, illuminating the green almost harshly against his vision. 

It was then the realisation came to him.

His bones.

He had left his bones in his makeshift den and they were not with him now. Ivar's eye twitched as his shoulders bunched up as tension began to roll through his body. His bones. His prized possessions. Sure he could replace them but he had gotten attached! Still did his eye twitch and he knew he needed to get a bone and soon, his teeth gnawing against each other where a bone should have been.
