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!

Orient Express, pt. 2


Here's the second half of the Orient Express hunt - lovely items from the Cambodia, China and Indonesia paths. Quick hunt recap: there are 6 paths in total (the three aforementioned plus Japan, Thailand and Singapore), you are looking for a train, each gift is 2L, and by joining the subscriber at the hunt start you get a NC with all the hunt paths and hints/LMs. That information can be accessed through their official website as well. There are no LMs inside the actual hunt items, so you do need the NC or the website open in a window while you hunt. The hunt continues until the end of the month, which is plenty of time to explore all 6 hunt paths.

Orient Express, pt. 1


The Orient Express hunt has been going on since mid-September and I finally got a chance to give it a shot the other night. This is an interesting little hunt - there are 6 paths, each representing a different Asian country: Cambodia, China, Indonesia, Japan, Singapore and Thailand. The hunt item is a 3D train, marked with the name of the country (this is important if you are following specific country paths, as some stores are on multiple paths) and each gift costs 2L. There are both male and female items, as well as some unisex stuff too. There are a total of 50 stores taking part in the hunt; however I was unable to find the hunt sign/item at Kabuki (Singapore path) or the item at Vero Modero (Thailand path). Those little trains are tricky - in a couple of stores, they didn't rez for me until I went back a second time.

This was fun hunt to do, especially at this time of year when there is a glut of halloween/horror themed hunts and you might be getting a little overloaded with witches and pumpkins. The starting point has a subscriber you can join which gives you a NC with all the hunt paths, hints and LMs or if you don't want to join the subscriber, you can also follow along with the website. The hunt folders do not have LMs to the next spot, so the NC seemed the easiest way to go for me. I have divided the photos of the hunt gifts according to the country path - they are in alphabetical order, not hunt order.

The hunt is scheduled from Sept. 15th to Oct. 31st, so you still have a couple weeks to get through all 6 country paths.  Happy Hunting!
