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
  • The setting and plot are member-created and staff-supported
  • The game is continuously improved to increase fun and decrease stress

Please complete this interest check survey by April 6! If players do not specify that they wish to continue managing their packs by this time, they will be disbanded. If you have any concerns or wish to discuss anything, please reach out to myself or another staff member.

She toed the line.

Olivier wasn't scared to leave the confinements of Vanderfell's claim, she was curious of it, most certainly, but would it bring anything to her life right now if she were to go and explore?

The girl stared out to the void with sharp features expressionless, ears twitching forward as she thought on it.

"Oli—hey!" Petra called. She had followed her sister from a distance and had tried to remain hidden, but it wouldn't be surprising if her sister suspected she was being followed. 

"Are you ... going out there?" she asked, stepping alongside her littermate. " ... you know mom doesn't like us going alone ... " Although Petra was unsure what kind of reaction the reminder would garner, she felt obligated to warn Olivier.

Her sister came.

One of them, anyway.

Olivier didn't look away from the horizon but her ears twitched in acknowledgement to her voice. She wasn't sure how she felt about being called Oli but the girl remained silent on it.

"I know," she noted, voice absent of emotion. It came from her throat with a flat tone and she glanced to Petra with a tilt of her head. "I would like to see what is out there," Olivier stated as she glanced back. "It is the only way to be sure." To see it for herself, that is.

She had no doubt her mother knew best.

But learning was a curve, wasnt it? And the best way to learn was first hand.
