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

Waking and Wondering

Evening Partly Cloudy 70° F

Though the sun was setting in the cloudy, dark background, the sun was rising in a new individual's mind.  Slowly but surely Ursula began to awake. Her little eyes fluttered open and they darted from side to side. No sign of nearby animals, no predators nor food. 

Soon she noticed that she was kind of hungry, not as if her stomach was tearing but as if the problem had to be fixed, so she picked herself up and shook her forest of shaggy fur and bellowed. Now to look for eye-catching objects. She stood on her hind legs, looking at her surroundings once more, being attentive but still somewhat foggy. She gave a little scratch. 

Soon she decided on scratching the tree in order to find grubs or tree-nesting ants, heck, a fallen fruit would also be pretty cool, it didn't matter to her.

A flower. Delicate. Thorny. Plucked from limbo as if a toy, placed upon the playmat of a child. There was no fanfare, no magical point of creation. She had simply awoken, alone, away from her kingdom. No matter.

Hasu stalked through the forest with the sole purpose of finding out where she was, finding someone to ask, something to indicate. Only when she found a mountainous creature — a bear — did she stop and seek its attention.

そこのあなた! Her voice was strident in the quiet. ここはどこですか?ここはどこ?

Ursula shot upright instantly, she didn't quite understand the language spoken, she thought she'd heard it before but didn't know it well so when she heard it, it spooked her. She turned her body and stared with droopy, beady eyes at the wolf now in front of her, she shook her shaggy coat and looked at her incredelously.

"Pardon?" She looked down at the wolf, on her back paws, making her about 5 feet tall now. She had terrible eyesight, so she went back down to 4 legs, looking at the wolf with curiosity. "Who exactly are you? are you dangerous?" on all 4s she was about 3 ft tall, a quite sad counterpart to her brown cousins in the forests. 

"Do you understand me?"
