Secondhand Lands

Official Website

About
Secondhand Lands is the massively multiplayer online game set in a fairytale world colored with parody and witty fun. The heroes are comprised of a motley crew of wolves, sheep, catgirls, and scrappers who have pledged their undying allegiance to either Little Bo Peep or Red Riding Hood. Well, perhaps not undying…

Features:
Wolves -Survival of the Fittest is more than a mantra – it’s a state of being. Lone Wolves easily make the strongest fighters, and they are also the fastest on foot. A retreating Wolf is hard to track down, and fights with Wolves are rarely fair. With their stealth, they will pounce on their opponent when they see a moment of weakness. Wolves also know how to focus their mysticism by calling upon the spirits with their chilling Howls, striking terror into the hearts of even the stoutest Sheep.

Sheep -The Sheep have developed a strong sense of order by keeping the needs of their flock ahead of their own desires. This philosophy has allowed the Sheep to survive and thrive in the face of the superior Wolves. Sheep aren’t as fast as Wolves, but there are some compensations for the wooly-coated ones. They have amazing jumping abilities, special ramming attacks, and downright baa-zar flocking bonuses. While a Wolf will probably take down a single Sheep, in a group battle the conclusion is by no means foregone.

Catgirls -With the spirit of a cat and the body of a girl, Catgirls must balance their feline tendencies with their human ones. Catgirls are incredible dancers and can summon bard like powers to increase the moral of their group members or to destroy their enemies. You can often find Catgirls using their incredible powers of shopping to get free coupons, too. Due to their small size, these denizens of dance are very slow, but Catgirls can mount sheep or wolves to make up for their slow speed.

Scrappers-Scrappers are a bipedal assortment of creatures not very interested in battle. With opposable thumbs and the inclination to use them, Scrappers can craft equipment, bake foods, smelt ore, re-enchant items, or bake tiles of awesome power. Due to their small size, Scrappers are very slow and aren’t very good at hand to hand combat, but when mounted on a Sheep or Wolf their powers of tilomancy make them a force to be reckoned with. There are 12 different kinds of Scrapper forms to choose from: bear, bull, cat, deer, dragon, fox, goat, lizard, sheep, skunk, squirrel, and wolf.

After you’ve created your character, utilize the highly configurable skill system in Secondhand Lands to create a custom build. Skill points can be spent towards acquiring 24 race-specific skills or tweaking your abilities with a known skill. With 200 skill points to spend, no two players will be alike!

Venture forth and help steal cable for the gnomes or solve the mystery of the Forest of Poorly Animated creatures in some of the over 120 handwritten quests that add decided flavor to the world.

When the going gets tough, mount other players and ride together into battle to utilize one anothers abilities with forceful results that will leave your opponents stunned, shocked, and awed.

Best of all, Secondhand Lands is free to play! Take advantage of everything the game has to offer and advance through the game to level 200 without spending a dime.

  • By roke00, January 16, 2012 @ 7:21 pm

    when will the servers be back online?

  • By shania, March 10, 2012 @ 1:58 am

    i still cant download the game :'(

  • By Tyco200, March 17, 2012 @ 1:56 pm

    Wow, so much for a great mmo… Best PixelMineGames had, anyways. Yes, it had a small, mostly troll filled community. Yes, it wasn’t that big. But guess what – It had FAR MORE potential than the other two MMOs. Will always miss SHL, glad I played as long as I did…

  • By Tyco200, March 17, 2012 @ 1:57 pm

    @Shania: SHL has apparently “ciezed operations.” Won’t be coming back, I guess. No one knows really why.

  • By Wooofy, March 27, 2012 @ 6:25 pm

    I’m sorry I ever Left SHL. I’m gonna miss it Dearly… To all who knew Wooofy, I was her. I’mma miss playing with you guys. Love you all! Anarchy ftw!

  • By Jojobio254, May 5, 2012 @ 10:29 am

    AWWWW! THE GAME IS DOWN!!!! BRING IT BACKKKKKKKK! I WANT TO PLAY!!!

  • By Egg, May 22, 2012 @ 12:53 am

    You guys really need to find a way to get ShL back up. This was hands down my favourite mmo out there, and it was something completely different. It never got boring, and brought many good friends to me. The community, though at times was bitter, were all in all close together. We were like a family, and we always were there for each other.
    You guys need to bring this back. Not having it in my life is really depressing, I miss good ol’ ShL, with the cigar smoking sheep, and the wolves that ran around with anthro dragons on their backs.

  • By Haunter, May 31, 2012 @ 1:05 pm

    I agree 100% with what Egg and Alex had to say. I miss the community, the unique PvP, the quests, and the fairy-tale world. I have tried many other MMO games, yet none even come to the standards of this game.

  • By Unimantti, June 8, 2012 @ 1:30 am

    I agree with you all. SHL was the bestest game I ever played. Those faction wars were epic, I get so many friends, and I love even my haters… I wish this lovely game will get back soon.

  • By Unihelmi, June 16, 2012 @ 12:16 pm

    Yep, SHL was one of the best games I ever played. I really miss it. I still remember when I started out early in 2011.. This game needs to get back. πŸ™ So many good memories with friends, had nice (and annoying aswell) times making quests, faction wars…

  • By Rekkz, June 16, 2012 @ 2:43 pm

    I found out why it died. Apparently they had money problems and couldn’t keep the server up Q.Q

  • By ThaChief, August 22, 2012 @ 6:13 am

    To those wo are interested maybe we can arrange a big reunion? Skype or mumble could be a good idea.

  • By Tyco200, August 30, 2012 @ 10:29 am

    Sure. My new skype is: TycoFenir. But, I won’t be taking any trolls, just so you know. ;)!

  • By Egg, September 3, 2012 @ 11:44 am

    I dont have skype, it messed with my computer too much.
    Didn’t Lancer want to bring it back, too? What happened to that?
    does anyone remember what Lancers site was for this? Maybe he’s got some information.

  • By Meadowstar, November 14, 2012 @ 6:00 pm

    It’s really a shame to see this game go down, as I have been looking for a Animal MMORPG like this one, and this happened to be the perfect choice. Just when I was about to try it, I found out that they have been shut down. Is there any way the SHL can be brought back up at all, by any chance? πŸ™

  • By Meadowstar, November 14, 2012 @ 6:01 pm

    *that

    (Sorry, fail typo. :\)

  • By Unihelmi, November 18, 2012 @ 11:54 am

    Meadow, it is said that Lancer has tried to bring the game back, but so far I haven’t heard really any news ’bout the game. I hope that someone who knows shl’s current status, if it is coming back, comments something about it here.

    Still waiting for the game to come back </3

  • By Howlite, November 29, 2012 @ 7:08 pm

    WHAAATTT!?!?!? D’: i fnally found an amzing looking game and its shut down??? noooo</3 why must all the amazing games go ;n;

    now i have to search for a 2nt best game ;n;…i wanted to be a bun bun </3

  • By Tierkooz, December 11, 2012 @ 4:32 pm

    One way of thinking people often use when they feel they need to stop playing a game for a while is “no worries, I can always continue playing again some time later”. I thought so too. That this game with it’s great setting and gameplay and as a platform for meeting lots of great people would still be here. That it isn’t is absolutely heartbreaking to me.

    However, I still feel that there might be a little bit of hope of this game being brought back one day, and if any serious attempt is ever going to be made I’ll happily support it.

    Until then or forever

    Goodbye <3

  • By Meadowstar, December 14, 2012 @ 1:18 pm

    Welp, hopefully they do successfully bring the game back. If not, then I find it a shame, but still, it’s only a game. Life itself is much more important.

  • By Flatsoda, January 8, 2013 @ 3:29 pm

    Augh, so sad to see this game get shutdown, even if it was nearly a year ago- it was basically the first MMORPG game that I actually put some heart into. ;-;
    As Meadowstar said, it’s only a game, but I still hope it’s brought back up.

  • By Wolfie., January 11, 2013 @ 4:03 am

    Wow, people are still bitching about this game’s demise? Yes, it was a great MMO. Yes, it had one of the best PVP systems. Yes, it was awesome. But, please. We all have lives. SHL is dead.

  • By Wolf boy., January 20, 2013 @ 10:46 am

    Bullshit – It’s gone. Let’s face it. It’s been done for more than a year. Screw it. Secondhandlands = Dead. Give up, people.

  • By WereWolf., January 20, 2013 @ 10:48 am

    If it does come back, it needs better mods. That would help cleanse the community of losers/trolls, and make the game more player friendly… Last I saw was a group of wasteproducts wasting it. All the good players off the game. Was sad…

  • By Werewolf, January 27, 2013 @ 4:59 am

    May I ask who you are? Are you a gm from the game originally? You act like a swine, and can’t spell a damn thing. Lastly,pig boy, it’s dead, lifeless. Now stop whining about its death, posting stupid, pig grammar, written b.s comments, on how “IT’S BEING FIXED”, because it’s DEAD.

  • By HancyFancy, January 27, 2013 @ 5:01 am

    Woah! “Doggydoom”? You mean, “I am pork fag”? Try to spell, pig.

  • By hugo & zipper&mojo, March 27, 2013 @ 4:00 am

    cant believe its done, i havent played this game in a very long time but i wanted to go on there today to see how things were sense both of my guys are maxed lvls! sad to see so much time i put in this game!

  • By mihaiul, May 6, 2013 @ 9:42 am

    Joined the game in 2008 I belive… played until shut down. The character I played on the most was Sheep of Doom, if anyone remembers that, you are cool πŸ˜‰

  • By ThaChief, May 12, 2013 @ 1:02 am

    I remember you my friend

  • By LOL, June 18, 2013 @ 12:37 pm

    Holy, inbreeding! We still got a degenerates wanting SHL to return from the grave! It’s been over a year since this game died, and the losers still bitch for its return. Also, how is a year old game, with terrible graphics, a small population with children suffering from ass-burgers syndrome and a hell lot of ADHD going to be resurrected by a 45yr old accused of pedophilia, with a job as a night guard?…

  • By Nicole, August 27, 2013 @ 7:14 am

    oy the one who is being rude stop it because there could be kids on this website and if they say to there mom what does that mean they could report this and get this website blocked so shut the hell up

  • By Little Riding Hood, September 18, 2013 @ 10:08 pm

    Hi. I saw here someone was asking about Lancer…. Last time I was talking to him he said he would probably give up on re-making SHL. πŸ™ But then Ishtar told me it would be online again around Christmas…. I hope it’s true!

  • By Hellhound118, October 3, 2013 @ 8:00 pm

    if that is true then it is going to be a great Christmas this game has lots of memories and I met a lot of great people basically everyone was nice in this game I hope this game comes back.
    just saying asking a troll or whatever to stop… he/she is not going to stop if people have not learned that yet…..

  • By Weaver, October 18, 2013 @ 2:32 pm

    Someone contact Bobby Thurman and tell him to use Kickstarter to raise funds.

  • By Quinky, November 9, 2013 @ 12:30 pm

    Yay I’ve heard about that thing about christmas, and I think it’s true. Bobby told it to one of mah friends from game. If it’s true, I’m looking forward :333 I loved SHL and I want it to come back.

  • By egg, December 10, 2013 @ 12:03 pm

    is it me going insane or did the shl website change too? did it always say “but you never know”?
    anyways, i hope that these rumors are true about it coming back around new year, it would make my whole year haha,, i miss this game still, sucks that the community wasnt full of the best people. didnt ruin it though :]

  • By TheDolphinKing, January 3, 2014 @ 1:55 pm

    Did the rumors say that this game will be back BEFORE new years? or AFTER new years? cuz…its not back…..I wish this game would come back I miss it so much ;-;

  • By egg, January 27, 2014 @ 1:28 pm

    i can only wait so long before i explode

  • By TwilightWolf01, January 28, 2014 @ 5:40 pm

    Lol I know right, I’m pretty sure its coming back, and maybe it’ll be back on March 1st. Cause thats when he took it down. Oh god, I’m so excited

  • By kung, March 2, 2014 @ 4:48 pm

  • By xXdestinyXx, March 18, 2014 @ 11:47 pm

    I hope this game comes back πŸ™ I used to play it and I decided to start playing it again and had no idea it closed :/ until I downloaded Pixel Mine and it was gone.

  • By TwilightWolf01, March 27, 2014 @ 5:47 pm

  • By it's back?!, August 15, 2015 @ 9:15 am
