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

The night was illuminated by the moon and glinting stars, an enchanting glow of silver cast upon the earth in a way that had Kore feeling completely at home. She brushed along rocks and wayward trees, spreading her scent after she had solidified more of Greenwood's border. Her steps were soft and bouncy, a dance to her gait as shown more often than not and her tail flagged slowly behind her as she relished in the light breeze of the night.

Her fur ends were illuminated by the moonlight, her mismatched gaze reflecting the dancing stars as she drew her head to the sky and breathed. Oh, she adored the night. Though all times of day were beautiful and held their own significance, she couldn't lie in her favouritism of the brilliant night. She flounced, humming as she went.

Emil had only wandered further now that he had been reacquainted with @Sylvanus. Knowing that the Lacus lingered nearby eased an itch in his brain, though that did not mean he wished to spend every waking moment with the man. He would much rather be alone, or at least that's what he would insist. Still, he would seek out the mortals that walked this plane to pick at their minds. At the very least, he now had a semblance of an idea of what it was he was meant to look into, but the strange event came and passed with little more than a stormy breeze.

Night had fallen as he pressed through the grassy plains. His paws had no aim, only that he might discover more secrets hidden away in this world. In the quiet, he would be met with nothing but the watchful gaze of the moon. It's light illuminated the tops of tall grass creating a scene far more lightened than the cover of woods until his gaze caught the movement of dull flames dancing in the open. Well, not the type of flames he was familiar with, but the burning pelt of another who moved with youthful grace. For a moment he would pause to watch before his ragged vocals cut the air, It's amusing how you move as if you own the place.

Someone else was here.

She turned her twinkling gaze as she flounced, catching the glint of another in the streams of moonlight. His fur reflected it well, bouncing the silver streams easily and Kore smiled, his words making her giggle softly. "I move because I am free," she corrected, "not because I own anything." The Irish woman would slow to a gentle stop as she faced him, tail still wagging behind her as she eyed him.

"The night is best for dance, the moonlight is enchanting," Kore would divulge serenely, "do you dance?"
