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

THANK YOU!

Edith had been looking for Aldritch—but she'd found something interesting in his stead. "What ... the fuck?" she asked herself. Whatever it was had the body of a wolf and the head of an elk; a personified intersection of the religion she'd devoted herself to. She was intrigued, to say the least. 

She crept towards the unidentified creature with the utmost caution. "Uh ... hey?" she yelled, "Did—The High Elk send you here?" Edith stood on the crest of a hill opposite Aldritch. She wanted to keep as much distance between them as possible, as she had no idea what the fuck this thing was or what it was capable of. Her body language was defensive and on edge; she stood stiffly with her tail tall and her ears forward.

Aldritch—very much like a Scooby Doo vilian—revealed himself by taking off his mask. Edith did a double take before speaking again, feeling very confused about what had just happened. 

"It has," she agreed, approaching him with the same caution she had before his unmasking. "You ... got an interesting look going on," she said, referencing the skull he'd been wearing. "When'd you start wearing that?"
