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!

Steam: The Hunt 5

Steam 5
We're out of the frying pan and into the fire - back to back BIG hunts this month in SL! First and foremost, for those who missed the announcement last week - Welcome Back Thanos Darkfury! As those who have been longtime readers of the blog might remember, Thanos was with us back at the beginning when the blog first kicked off. He blogged with us fearlessly no matter where we dragged him or what we asked him to model, and was a wonderful asset to the blog. Unfortunately, he had to leave us last November. I was lucky enough to bribe him into coming back, and this is his first blogged hunt since his return.

And - what a hunt to pick for his first one back! Steam 5 is huge - tons of stores, tons of gifts, and tons of places to explore. Its a completely different vibe from Twisted, unique in its own way, and always a good time. There is an official blog with SLurls for the stores, there is an in-world group for help if you need it, and they keep an up-to-date notecard available in the group notices with information regarding skipped stores, changed SLurls, etc. There is no hints list - hints are available at each shop in the gear attached to the hunt signs. There were several skips in this first section, but the gifts for the most part have LMs inside to the correct next store, and it was fairly easy to navigate with the help of the group notecard. The first stop's pack of goodies includes a bracelet to wear that helps the gear rez more quickly - not sure if this is true or not, but I do wear it for luck when I do this hunt. Enjoy the pictures, and have a great time getting Steamed!

Cheers, and Happy Hunting!
