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

A little AW for any prospective wolves looking to join Juh'harah, set between Bluewater Lake and Ripperwood.

He'd been tracking a small herd of deer since they made their journey past the lake, moving southward to the Temperate, he'd take note over the course of a day and a night that they weren't migrating far, many breaking off to flit past him, returning to the lake or beyond before returning. It meant to him this would be their grounds, the same way a pack would claim a pinch of land to call their own, where they recouped and rested and lived. This would mean that M'Jakuna wouldn't enlist any sort of hunt on them quite yet... He'd wait until their grounds were neutral, prey didn't deserve any sort of fright where they'd reside.

M'Jakuna would note, however, their path from the wood to the lake. He'd need Meresankh, his mother... but they could take a deer down; and they'd need it, not a bit would waste. With a return to the lake as constant as it was becoming, fur would be useful for bedding comfortably and there were enough mouths with him now that he worried little for where the bones would go.

Ever caught in his focus on the deer, he'd notice in delay the approach of another.
