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

she was,

she was lost.

not only in the way of not knowing where she was, but when.

days blurred, and yet there were clear slices of nights spent looking at the stars, and seeing them look back.

sunrises were same as sunsets. sometimes, she would see the sun dip, and raise her head to see it higher.

sweltering heat and bone-chilling cold alternated.

sometimes she'd hear a baby crying in the distance, and race to find her child.

but there was only ever mist.

she... couldn't remember what she ate. some days, the little woman would simply awaken - come to awareness - with something sweet and bitter smeared across her muzzle. 

like now. 

the bichon wandered aimless trough sparse tress shielding her from horrible sun. there were deep lines of pink running from her eyes, and a splattering of deep purple sticking her beard.

she looked a little wraith, felt like one, certainly.

... where were her babies?

she does. she speaks. she thinks.
