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

x March 25: Welcome back! Canis has officially reopened; read more about the changes here. There is an active World Event you can find here. Have fun!
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.

Your character is approved! Now what?

Our recommendation is to start an AW (All Welcome) thread in the place where your character "wakes up." In Canis, wolf characters always come from somewhere beyond — how they get here is anyone's guess. Some characters seem to just appear. Others wake in a weird place, or wash up on a beach. It's your choice!

Your character can start in Canis anywhere you want, though be aware that if they awaken in a claimed territory, they might be kicked out by the resident wolves!
