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 had, perhaps, woken up too late.

While there were no strict rules in Elysium, and she felt the traveling had done her in, Tallulah felt unnaturally tired. Valeska, Amaranth, and Harper did not employ a schedule to follow, but she felt a bit of downtime did her good. Leaning against the wall of her den, she stretches, yawns, and exits. Unaware of her condition - and perhaps she would for some time - the woman turns away from the border and heads further in.

Her paws take her to the cache. Her nose wrinkles at the aging prey pile. At least there was something to do while she waited for Nick to be done with his duties. She'd catch up later. The man liked to work, and Tallulah liked to do that as well. Settling before the cache, she began to pluck old prey out. Thankfully, none of it was rotting. Just a few days old, but Elysium held such rich hunting grounds that she could stand to drag out half-eaten meals and old food.

With plans to bury the old, she craned her neck toward another after making a small pile. A wolf of Elysium, no doubt, considering it was too far from the neutral border. "Afternoon," she comments to them, pup or adult.

There was no doubt in her mind that Harper was this one's mother. She had seen the pale, gold, and even red child of Amaranth and Valeska around. This boy was red, true, but he was different marking-wise compared to Alder. Still, she did smile down kindly at this one as she would any other. Tallulah just hoped he could make heads or tails out of her accented words. And that she could... well, socialize with a pup in a successful way. Dimitri was proper, a right little adult. 

This one could be totally different. So she chose to focus on the item he had so carefully tucked away. Amaranth wore feathers too. "That's a pretty feather" she remarked to the pumpkin-colored boy "where did ya git it?" It seemed he had been carrying it around for awhile because she didn't see him pick it up. Though, he could have... She had been rather invested in her work. As if remembering this, she turned halfway to the cache again. So she could halfway talk to the boy.

Another half-eaten squirrel was placed to the side. "M' Tallulah" she introduced herself "Tallie works, or Lulu" Though only one seemed to have called her 'Lulu' in the past, and he was not (to her knowledge) here. Goliath had also been remembered, along with her Pa, Walter. The others back on the ranch too. "what's yer name?"

Big water.

She knew that. Tallulah nods. "Lake" she informs him, saying the word slowly and properly pronounced. Trying to discard her thick accent for the sake of teaching the little lad. Thankfully, little Orel wanted to know the word. He stared up at her in silent question, almost like a plea. Tallie-Lulu though... That earned an amused grin, and she made a point to tell Nick later about her new nickname. "s' nice to meet ya, Orel." 

He proceeds to ask what she is doing. Tallulah glances back at him briefly before her eyes flicker to the pile. "Sortin' through t' cache" she informs the boy with a confirming nod "there's some old food needin' to be thrown out" She gestures to the smaller pile "n' I'll start to organize more hunts to refill, as one o' the hunters in t' pack." She didn't know much about puppies, so she could only guess he was young. Too young to participate in those hunts.

Perhaps Valeska and Amaranth's kids could? Again, she didn't keep track of puppy ages. "Ya wanna help, Orel?" She asked the boy again, smiling down at him.
