Welcome!

Hi there and welcome to Freebie Hunters! One of our favorite pastimes in Second Life is scouting the grid for fantastic hunts, sales, 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 occurring every month. We do our best to show ALL items from a hunt 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!

Final Word on MHO6

I had intended to leave this topic in the dust, as I felt there was nothing more of value to say on the subject nor any need to keep attention focused on it anymore. However, I was linked last night to a post made by Rob1977 Moonites, one of the co-owners of the MENStuff group regarding statements made by the MHOII owner that bloggers were being *paid* to badmouth the MHOII hunts.

Let me be crystal clear on this topic: THIS BLOG NEVER HAS BEEN PAID BY ANY HUNT COORDINATOR, STORE OWNER, DESIGNER OR ANY OTHER PERSON IN SL TO RENDER AN OPINION ABOUT A HUNT, TO POST ABOUT A HUNT, OR IN ANY WAY ENDORSE, SLANDER OR OTHERWISE COMMENT ABOUT ANY HUNT.

I resent the hell out of the implication that my blog is in essence for sale in that manner, and any other legitimate blogger out there who blogs like we do, simply for the pleasure in sharing our interests and passions with others, should be equally insulted. The fact that the owner of MHOII, who himself has stolen the MHO name and is attempting to ride on the coattails of the original MHO group's success, is the one starting these baseless rumors is very telling, I think, of how his own mind works. I think that owner's true colors are showing more and more, and to a broader base of people as time goes by, and hopefully there is sufficient information for people out there to make up their own minds about what kind of person he truly is and whether or not they wish to be associated with him and his business ventures in Second Life.

Furthermore, in response to the completely erroneous post made by Vic ZuZu on his own blog:

1) Rob1977 Moonites did not pay me to write anything - I doubt he knows me as more than a blogger and vendor in MENStuff. He is not on my friends list, and I don't think I have ever had a conversation with him.

2) The same applies to the accusation of being friends with the coordinator of the Seasons hunts - I have not even participated in those hunts as a vendor, let alone be a personal friend of the coordinators.

3) As for his claim that I was ejected last December from MHO5, these are from my logs in SL:

When I joined the group just before the hunt:
[2011/07/18 18:48] MAKE HIM OVER INVITER: Click the link from Chat History (Ctrl+H) and then click on JOIN button! secondlife:///app/group/cc0db273-c972-6bce-c74f-03a32a81d146/about
[2011/07/18 18:49] Teleport completed from http://slurl.com/secondlife/Dragovar%20Dynasty%20Estates/94/65/31

When I was thrown off the MHO2 sim the day of the hunt's beginning:
[2011/07/20 20:06] MystiTool HUD 1.3.1: Entering chat range: Vic Zuzu (19m)
[2011/07/20 20:08] MystiTool HUD 1.3.1: Entering chat range: Vic Zuzu (19m)
[2011/07/20 20:09] You are no longer allowed here and have 15 seconds to leave.
[2011/07/20 20:09] You are no longer allowed here and have been ejected.
[2011/07/20 20:10] You have been teleported home by the object 'SWA Security Orb v6' on the parcel 'Everything Always'.
[2011/07/20 20:10] Teleport completed from http://slurl.com/secondlife/Dragovar%20Dynasty%20Estates/1/130/21

And when I was ejected from the group:
[2011/07/20 20:11] Vic Zuzu: You have been ejected from 'MAKE HIM OVER II' by Vic Zuzu.

Additionally, I was on the MHO2 sim with a hunt partner when this all happened. There is a witness to my being kicked, and the resultant WTF conversations in IM with my hunt partner at the time it happened.

Vic, you are nothing but a baldfaced liar.

There comes a point when personal ethics need to override the desire to promote one's business, and as far as I am concerned, that point has been crossed several times over.

Waffle Fox Hunt

Waffle Fox Hunt
Waffles...mmmm! I couldn't resist when I saw the signs for this hunt - it immediately went on our to-do list and it was a great choice. Most of the stores were new to me, but there were a few tried-and-true places mixed in, so it was a lot of fun being able to explore a bit more of SL's offerings while on this hunt path. There is a lot to do (and play with!) in the stores and on these sims, so give yourself plenty of time to let things rez and poke around each location. The gifts are gorgeously made, and just plain fun - how can you NOT enjoy flying waffles or a spinning top that twirls you until you hurl?

And...because no mention of waffles is complete with out it... click here !

Cheers, and Happy Hunting!

The Seasons Hunt: Summer

The Seasons Hunt: Summer
You're gonna need a bigger inventory. Its the summer of sharks here in SL, and the Summer Hunt has you in pursuit of 70+ friendly great whites named Steve. The hunt is chock-full of really great designers and some absolutely fantastic shops and sims to explore as you search for the elusive hunt item. There is an official blog and in-world group if you need the extra help, but you should be able to navigate it with no problem using the blog page.

HOWEVER - be warned that there are NO LMs inside the hunt items, you need to refer to the blog to get through the hunt. I numbered the items to correspond to the blog listing of stores, but the hunt does not follow any particular order, and you can bop around from place to place however you desire. Some of the stores are incredibly hard - lots of decoys and itty bitty sharklets, but they are all there and the only shops I skipped were the few indicated as skips on the blog.

You don't have much time on this hunt, so set aside part of this weekend and go claim yourself a gorgeous bit of summer.

Cheers, and Happy Hunting!

MHO6

Hi guys....

We here at SLFreebie Hunters had planned to bring you the Make Him Over Hunt 6, despite our disagreement with how the current hunt group came to be. We support all-male hunts, and think that since the guys get shafted so often on hunts, attention should be given to those hunts that cater to the SL male population regardless of WHO is coordinating the hunt. To that end, we covered the MHO5 hunt last time around.

This time, however, I was kicked out of the MHO group without a word of warning or explanation by the group owner. Considering I had not spoken in the group whatsoever, nor had I had any contact with anyone running the group and had not, in fact, joined the group until the hunt started so that I could do the hunt - I can only conclude that they do not want to be included in our blog, nor receive the exposure for their vendors our readers provide.

Therefore, if you are interested in MHO6, so sorry, but no - we are not covering them whatsoever. My apologies to the store owners and hunters who enjoy using our blog as a resource in the hunt community, but I see no reason to give my time or energy to something when this is the response from the coordinators.

Edit added 7/27/2011: My edit grew almost as long as the original post and has been moved to its own entry in the blog. ~SL

Three Moons Hunt

Three Moons Hunt Hunt
Black Cat Productions is bringing us a fantastic Gorean/RP oriented hunt for a limited time this month - the Three Moons Hunt. There are a little over 70 stores involved, and the designers have created a ton of fantastic clothing, furnishings and some really creative builds to tempt you along the journey. As with all Black Cat hunts, there is in official blog page with hints and stores, so navigating the hunt is extremely easy and if you get stuck, its a breeze getting to the next location. Be sure to check it, as they keep it updated with information about bumps along the way. You are searching for a moon, and let me tell you - that little sucker is very cleverly hidden at some of these stores! We had a great time on this hunt, the variety of stores was a nice mix of familiar faces and some new places to explore, so don't waste any time - this hunt is only here for 2 weeks.

Cheers, and Happy Hunting!

Greedy Hunt

Greedy Hunt
I wasn't sure what to expect on the Greedy Hunt, but the poster was cute, and I knew some of the stores listed on the path, so I gave it a shot and wow! There are some really nice gifts for the hunters from these talented designers. The hunt itself is easy to do in an evening or two, with plenty of time to explore the fascinating shops along the way. There is an official blog with hints if you need them. Even if you find the item quickly, its worth poking around and checking out some of the gorgeous, imaginative things these stores have to offer. The hunt runs to mid August, so you have plenty of time to enjoy yourself along the way.

Cheers, and Happy Hunting!
