Welcome!

Hi there and welcome to Freebie Hunters! One of our favorite pastimes in Second Life is scouting the grid for fantastic hunts, sales, events and gifts from all the wonderful creators. We thought we'd share the wealth and showcase some of our finds in this blog, with an emphasis on the goodies available in the many SL hunts and events occurring every month. We do our best to show ALL items from a hunt/event and in the manner the creator intended, but this is not always possible.

An important reminder - All deals posted are subject to the whims of the item creators, and are often offered for a limited time (from hours to months). We do not guarantee the items are still available, and the creators are under no obligation to give anything.

Thank You to all of the creators!

Timeless Hunt

TIMELESSposter

Fallen Gods Inc. has been a staple in Second Life for ages when it comes to unique fantasy skins and more. They are celebrating their 10th anniversary this month with all kinds of in store events and a fantastic hunt that runs to the end of the month. You can check their website (link below) for a full schedule and more specific information on the events they have planned for the month of October.

I finished up their Timeless Hunt last night and couldn't wait to share the photos of the amazing gifts today. This is a hud hunt - you can pick one up at several locations (information on their website as to where) and you do need to be wearing it as you make your rounds through all the participating stores. In each location, you are looking for an hourglass - some are easy to find, others not so much. Once you find it, get close enough to touch it, and the store will register on your hud. It then teleports you to the next spot and gives you the next clue. Once your meter is full and you have found all the hourglasses, you get teleported to the prize room, filled with all the goodies you see below.

I enjoyed the hunt quite a bit - some of the stores were new to me, a few suckered me into doing a little shopping and it was a great chance to get out and do some exploring. Also, I did crash a couple times, and each time the HUD kept track of where I had been, making it super easy to spread out the exploring over a few days without worrying about losing your place.

Ironwood Hills Halloween Hunt

ironwood-hunt-poster

Hello all you lovely ghouls and ghoulettes! Its that time of year when SL finds itself taking on a darker, more macabre tone as the grid fills up with halloween events to spook, creep and generally give you a good scare. There are so many events crammed into a few weeks, in fact, it can be hard picking the must-do ones out of the bunch. Well, if you like a little mystery mixed in with your creep factor, you do not want to miss the Ironwood Hills Halloween Hunt going on now until November 5th.

When you arrive at the start of the hunt, you pick up a hud and a flashlight, strap them all on, take a deep breath, and catch an elevator TP to a delightfully spooked out deserted (more or less...) town. Once there, explore the town, find the clues and solve the mystery. Once you solve the mystery and reach the end of the adventure, you get a chance to visit the shopping area of the sim - 24 shops with some unique things for sale AND a congratulatory gift you can pick up for finishing the adventure. But you can't get there without working your way through the hunt mystery - and believe me, it's definitely worth it.

I've shown the prizes you can collect at the end, but gifts aside, the sim is amazing and the storyline as you work through the clues and explore the various shops, mansions and locations was a blast. I thoroughly enjoyed this one and was a little sorry to finish it up.
