Based on the responses we got to the last journal, Windsonde's chat roleplay schedule will be Friday 5-9 PM, Saturday 11 AM-2 PM and Sunday 8 PM-12 AM.  All times listed in Pacific Standard Time.  Hopefully there is a day everyone can make it if they wish!  Chatroom roleplays will not always have an admin present, so group members may begin whenever they feel like/whenever others arrive and pick a setting of their choice from the map.  

There is also a Windsonde Tumblr now!  It will feature art submitted to the group, the various sketches and doodles done by members on tumblr, and regular features of cool avian and feline species that can be used in Windsonde.

Can I feature Windsonde and respective characters on my literature work? To add some challenge to my work. Oh, and don't expect anything good from it, I'm a begginer, and I am just training my writing.

You are free to write stories set in the Windsonde world in general. But you would have to go seeking after individual permission for any characters you wish to include. 
Please note, however, that if your plan 
is to then submit your writing to the group, I need to inform you that we don't accept written works.

I don't wish to submit it to Windsonde, the goal is to make literature and submit it to groups that accept literature. But thanks for the reply.

P.S.: The first aspect of Windsonde that will be mentioned will be the landscape, then some unknown gryphons, then people's characters And I might just start asking for permition to use people's characters. By the way, can I use your character Reva?
And the story might involve a large triangular object.
 When the first character of mine arrives there, the triangular object won't be mentioned, It will only be mentioned if other characters try to go to Windsonde. If you want more information, just ask me.

P.P.S.: I hope you can understand this reply.

Hey, I was wondering if Windsone was coming back, and if my art would be acceptable for the group or the dragon group? I would call myself not the best but improving. I do draw gryphons quite often and I feel like I'm pretty decent at bird, cat, and dragon anatomy, hence me drawing owls and other birds all the time. Im up for any critiques also.
