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!

D is for Deviants Hunt

D is for Deviant Hunt
October is the best month for the spooky, macabre, left of center type hunts and that makes it Shadow's personal favorite hunt month. D is for Deviant sounded like a hunt right up our alley this month, so we were excited to hit the hunt path when this one opened. We did the D is for Deviant hunt early, starting it on the day the hunt began, and we hit the usual handful of snags to be expected on opening day of a hunt. Some of them included a few stores where we couldn't find an item, a store with an LM that landed us over 100m from the actual store itself in an empty store, and roughly a third of the hunt stores giving out objects instead of folders which made for some confusion in locating the next store's LM.

At those places where we didn't find the item, we had to search for the LMs to the next stop ourselves, since the blog did not have SLurls listed (UPDATE: As we are putting together this post, I see the official blog now has hints and Slurls posted which will definitely help you get through easier, so be sure to check out their blog!). All in all - it's definitely do-able and we expect it will run smoother once they have a chance to iron out some of the opening hunt kinks.

The hunt does include some really great designers and the gifts were, for the most part, excellent with gorgeous texturing and solid design. It is a shorter hunt with only 30 stores which makes it a comfortable couple of nights' hunting with plenty of time to explore and enjoy the stores.

Cheers, and Happy Hunting!

I sound like a broken record...but..if you have not taken the HUNT POLL: OCTOBER 2011 survey, please take a moment and fill it out. It gives you a chance to let us know what you like and dislike about the current hunt scene and practices, and the information we are learning so far has been invaluable. Give your voice a chance to be heard, and let us know what you think!
