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!

A Note from Thanos

A note from Thanos

For the very longtime followers of this blog, you may remember me; Shadow recently posted an old picture of me from way back when. I have returned to the blog, and more importantly returned to Shadow. You will surely see me popping up in pictures now and then, and I may chime in with my thoughts. From the beginning, I encouraged Shadow to put some of herself into this blog, and I am pleased to see that she listened to me. She is a complex and highly intelligent woman, and frankly, I think she has more to offer the world than a "here is which hunt prize you might be interested in" photo.

This blog should be a powerful tool in the toolbox of any SL hunter. I think it’s great to learn which gifts are a unique bit of an SL creators imagination, and which ones are something that just isn’t for your own personal tastes (whatever they may be) thereby allowing you to divest yourself of the inventory clutter that many hunters know can creep on you fast. I understand there is some frustration out there, the hunting has slowed down, maybe the hunt that some of you were looking forward, or created gifts for were missed. Quite simply the reason behind that is that the two of us were becoming reacquainted with each other. Doing the things that couples in SL should do with each other. Some nights we spend dancing, or visiting some of the myriad and wondrous live music performances that SL offers, sometimes we hunt, or work on the home that we have created together. This is more than a blogging “business" arrangement. I care about her, and always have. We have found a comfortable place, and the speed bumps that we ran over getting there have drifted off to the horizon like a 3 day binge beer fart on a windy fall day. A momentary unpleasantness that leaves a bad taste in your mouth, but it fades in the end.

We have been busy, the two of us. Creating our own little utopia inside of SL. She is, and always will be, more driven than I. I hunt for fun, and because I enjoy her company; she hunts like a demon collecting souls for Satan’s birthday party. We always worked as a team, and that chemistry, and I am proud to say my own hunting skills, have not faded in the least. Our home has become an amalgam of her building skills and my immaculate taste, and it suits us. This blog, I hope can become a similar building block in our relationship. Kind of like that dog that your partner has had since it was a puppy. It’s hers, but I love it too, and I hope that the readers will learn to like me and my contributions as well. I enjoy writing, and I hope to bring some of my personality to these pages. Longer stuff like this, I’m not as good at probably, too much ADD, but I do love to write poetry, so maybe I will sprinkle some poetic seasonings in here to spice things up a bit. Now on to what this post is about…

As I have said, I wanted to put some of our souls into this. The two of us spent some time, taking pictures, changing clothes, and just goofing off and having fun. We decided to post these so you can get a glimpse behind the hunting machines that post the pictures on this blog. We are real people, just like all of the people who are interested in SL. Our avatars are an extension of ourselves, which we wanted to share. I hope that if we don’t meet your expectations, you will show us some grace, because we have to get our “us” time in as well. I am blessed to have found a woman who seems to be able to enjoy my own silly passion (Anime with a heavy emphasis toward Naruto Shippuden, and I might add she is a saint for watching with me) and I am proud to say I introduced her to the Misfits and we have recently taken a liking to something I think called “the Peep Show.” Let it be known then, that I love, and have always loved Shadowed Luik and more importantly the soul of that name. I have it on good authority that she feels the same way about me. So I guess my point is… Well they say a picture is worth a thousand words. Here is one for you sharp hunters who love the hunts with the clues, I will let you figure it out ;o)

Love and respect
Thanos Darkfury (Ninja and SL fashion plate)

  7. These bloggers work very hard, do not often use space for personal announcements - and this happens to be a major announcement. If you didn't want to read it, it takes about a second to scroll down to hunt information.

    Shadowed and Thanos - congratulations !!

    P.S. Thank you for a great blog :)

  18. May I add my voice to the myriad of voices here and send both my best wishes and thanks to Thanos for such an especially beautiful and heartfelt post. You can feel exactly what he feels for her in every word on this page and I think it's an incredible thing. Congratulations to you both and may you always look at each other with the love you feel today, for all of your tomorrows.
