Fan Characters will be competing for $1,000,000.
Oh yeah, I'm back! Sorry for the Delay! As you can see, there are quite a few assets that needed to be completely done from scratch.
Wow, we're entering a whole new dimension of Survivor right here. Actually, wait, did you check to see if this isn't just some prop location in Samoa? I feel like that happens all too often.
(Now commenting on both sites)
@GaryHawkinsLandscaper: If its a fake, they did a good job of fooling me
@GaryHawkinsLandscaper: I know this is off topic but OMG I JUST NOTICED YOUR PROFILE PIC IS GUNDAM <333333
@Riskfan: <Obtained Hype>
Holy hell, this is gonna be something.
@ChronoAlone: I hope so, put alot more effort into camps. (And Especially challenges) Than I normally do
Can't say I was expecting this to be the returnee twist. I'm looking forward to seeing who will be playing and I have a feeling this location will make things very interesting (and funny).
@DryIceBros: Gotta say, I am having fun with the location. Sure beats Generic Island #14
@SWSU-Master: Generic island #13 wasn't that good, but i thought generic island #8 was pretty good.
@Riskfan: I was a pretty big fan of Generic Island #9, personally.
So what I think I gathered...
Stagg (loved one in panel 7)
Ivan (panel 10?)
Tialayla (panel 8?)
@Guest: (*realizes something*) The person on the far right on Panel 8... that better not be who I think it is.
@GaryHawkinsLandscaper: Hmm...could it be...Brandi?
@ChronoAlone: No. Worse.
@ChronoAlone: Yeah. Can we stretch out the wait a little bit longer so we can buy enough Xanax for the entire season?
@GaryHawkinsLandscaper: There's not enough of that in the world when Amelia is involved.
@GaryHawkinsLandscaper: You are not alone in your fear my friend
@GaryHawkinsLandscaper: Tbh, I'm almost more worried about Bonnie returning. Almost. Bonnie might have played out her shtick a long time ago, but Amelia is Amelia.
@Guest: Got quite a few, but not all
And also that the returnees tribe is yellow, and newbies tribe is pink
@Guest: I don't know. In panel 7, the blonde guy has a yellow speech bubble, so maybe it's the other way around? Perhaps it could be post-switch?
@ChronoAlone: Or it could be like what Blood vs. Water was originally intended to be- a blood tribe vs. a water tribe.
@GaryHawkinsLandscaper: That's a possibility.
Wow! There's a lot of detail and effort put into these backgrounds! Well worth the wait. Nicely done!
The nights would be eerie though. The hills are watching...
I've been following SFC for a while now, it's about time I start commenting.
@EJ122: Thankfully we don't see night much
I have a question, SWSU. Why don't I see a donate button or a patreon or something? You've been doing a wonderful job and I've been following you for almost a decade now but I don't think I've ever seen you try to make some side cash of this. I don't think anyone would begrudge you a donate button.
I mean I'd click it.
@Eternal Cry: Just never really tried it lol
@SWSU-Master: A paypal donate button wouldn't hurt. Just plop it on there.
Obviously, time for speculation!
The obvious players coming back are Bowser, Damon, Sgt. Stagg, and Tialayla.
Gonna take a shot at the dark and say Juiced Up is also coming back. I think the red haired, tan skinned woman in Panel eight is related to him. And Juiced Up got severely screwed over, so it makes sense to bring him back... even if we hated him.
Jeff mentioned three time players too, so there's a chance that someone that competed in All-Stars or Battle of the Tribes is coming back. And no... don't think its Bonnie, or Kris. They're the only plausible third timers hinted at, but I doubt Bonnie will come back anyway.
Although... Ky's appearance is telling. Obviously not everyone shown in the flashbacks is coming back. One, no winners, and two, I doubt SWSU would use Bonnie again like I said.
@TJBambi93: The people used in Panels 4 and 5 dont mean much. Some are in, Some aren't. I was just getting Family Visitors, and not everyone in the cast made it to the family visit.
@TJBambi93: Taking a Wild Shot in the dark here.
Male Returnees: Vinnie, Damon, Bowser, Juiced Up, Sgt. Stagg
Female Returnees: Tialayla, four unidentified female players; probably all one time players.
Male Loved Ones: Riley (Tialayla's bf), Bowser Jr. (Bowser's son), three unidentified male loved ones.
Female Loved Ones: Female Loved One for Juiced Up, Female Loved One for Damon, Doris (Stagg's wife), and two unidentified
Hi there at LAST! BOY, it's been a LONG time coming, but the wait is finally OVER!
Now then, from what I can see here, this is Obviously the 1st EVER Hybrid season for this series to witness indeed. & given that it's basically the BvW theme we've LONG expected to see sooner or later, I'm a bit shocked that it's here so suddenly (as I thought it'd be until like, after S20 bf this'd come-up), but hey, it's a NEW beginning to start the year off SUPER fresh indeed!
Based on the few snippets in this preview, I think the ONLY definitive people returning (RTs) are those so far from the LAST 5 seasons. Some of which include Bowser/Damon/St. Stagg (from 12-14 respectively). But overall, I think we have UP to 3 people here playing for a 3rd/Final time (from playing once more on AS/BotT), thus making it now/never for them atp.
As for the LOs (Loved Ones), I think we have a VERY small hints for who they go w/ to help bring back as well. Plus, I have a feeling that some LOs are there just to let their RT member play once more, while others actually BEGGED their RT to play once more against their original wishes to come back (only to buckle, simple to give said LOs a shot to play SO passionately). But the Biggest thing I'm interested in (well, 2 thing really), are that 1) how many Same-Sex pairs (MM/FF) are there each compared to the Co-Ed pairs (MF), & 2) which preferred tribal arrangement(s) do either of you prefer in Blood/Water-based or simply Veteran/Rookie-based?
Let me know please from ALL of you indeed, as this should be a Super fun process to witness ite.
P.S. SWSU, when do you think you get the Profiles/Assessments uploaded after this Preview?
1. 4 Same Sex, 6 Co Ed
2. Not Telling
No wonder it took so long, this looks fantastic can't wait to see what you have cooked up. I wonder if future seasons with be filmed in different worlds. I word love to see something like that.
@ChaoticCross: If this season goes well I plan to. If it turns out people dont like it, I'll likely go back to the normal islands.
Is there a chance we might recognize some of the loved ones like in the real Blood vs. Water (Laura B and Katie)?
YES! FINALLY! Just checked the date of the last finale and realized that I've kept this tab opened for nearly 6 months simply to refresh the page on a semi-daily basis..... This is the only comic I've ever been even close to that dedicated to keep up with. Glad to see you're still alive SWSU :p
Past that, also YES on seeing Bowser again. I honestly think he was my number 1 pick as a returning canon. Well, either him or Sephiroth. I just want them for the absurdity of it~ There's a few others that would have been good with but I'm glad to see him. I'm also really glad to see Damon and I think Stagg back. Still rooting for Eli and/or Sasha since they're my all-time favorites, but....I won't hold my breath.
Looking forward to what the future holds! And very solid design work btw SWSU~
@anime9001: After having this season in the Mushroom Kingdom, how could I not have Bowser in?
oh man, i almost forgot my login info for smackjeeves. glad to see some sfc16. it's been a long time!
good to see sfc has finally left samoa, or whatever the island was. i like seeing survivor stories where the location plays a part in the story, rather than just having the characters plopped into an island. can't wait for stupid mario party challenges!
others have already commented on most of the returning castaways (tialayla! damon! bowser without enter!), but does anyone else think that's brandi near the ladder on panel 8? there's also a redhead girl in a bikini top in the same panel, and i have no idea who she is.
i think that's vinnie in panel 10, but a little older, and balder. the person next to him (overweight redhead woman with hairband) might be his loved one or something. anyone know who that is? sfc sure has a lot of redheads! wait, is that jojo and liz's mom? EDIT: no she isn't.
the tribal council set is great! is it based off ghostly galaxy from super mario galaxy? it's got the "haunted mansion floating in space" vibe. this is a minor thing, but i think the tribal council fireplace should be blue to match with the rest of the set. maybe that's too non-survivor.
@Congo: I'm really scared that the redhead in panel 8 might be Amelia...
@dat4yc: I'm amelia's owner and i didn't get a confirmation note so I'm guessing she's not on
@Congo: I tried blue flame in the center but it didnt't look right
@Congo: Panel 10 old man can't be Vinnie. Vinnie's eyes are brown, not blue. Vinnie could be the other guy in the same panel, since he did wear a wig to hide his baldness... and his eyes are brown.
Finally, a preview! Blood vs Water, huh? Should be interestin' to see the castaways thrive in the .... untamed wilds of.... the Mushroom Kingdom...
I'm gettin' huge Super Mario RPG vibes for some reason. Nnngh.
@RedBeryl: I hope this even comes close to how good SMRPG is
Oh hell yes!! I've been waiting for this announcement!! Pretty sure I've looked on this page everyday since the SFC15 finale lol.
Very excited for the new look of the series, definitely can see why this took a little longer. Also happy to see some of these returnees, especially Damon, one of my favorite characters in this series. Hope the rest of the cast is just as awesome, can't wait for the cast reveal!
@dat4yc: Picking out this cast was tricky since there was also the loved ones factor. So the cast might seem a little strange at first
@SWSU-Master: Hey, the first BvW's returnee cast looked like a bad Brantsteele sim, don't worry about it.
All aboard the hype train, it has officially left the station! The departure was a little delayed, but that isn't a huge deal. I'm just glad the new season is finally around :D PLUS! Excited to see Stagg and Damon come back and play again! Along with whoever else may come along. I'm also curious as to how well these loved ones will do at the game. Only time will tell, I suppose.
@Niftyness: Thankfully most of the waiting is over
Holy Cow! They used my idea! Awesome! Using a Location besides a basic earth! I am so Hyped!
@Timeheart: It was about time for a shakeup :P
@SWSU-Master: I had no idea that you were going to take SFC off of Earth. If I'd known, I'd have suggested Roshar (land of, among other things, giant crustaceans, glowing gemstones, and weekly hurricanes so massive that they cover the continent).
Oh my god I'm so pumped for this!! Damon, Stagg, and Bowser are three of my favorite castaways of all time and it's surreal to see them all back! If people are right about Vinnie as well, that's another all time favorite for me. Now if Ky was the fifth male, we could actually be looking at five of the best characters which would be amazing. Can't even convey how pumped I am for this
@Pout123: I will say due to SFC15's recentness, it is not as well represented as 11-14. Saving some for the next go around.
@SWSU-Master: Yeah that definitely makes sense. Wouldn't want to make any of those characters stale
@SWSU-Master: So this implies that 11, 12, 13, and 14 have two members each? 15 for one member, and a third time player from All-Stars or Battle of the Tribes
Mother of God.
@Sinjoh: Father of Satan...
@SWSU-Master: The Father of Satan is actually God because God created the Angels, witch Satan was before falling.
The wait has been worth it so no need to apologize!
Backgrounds and locations look awesome. This would be a good opportunity to hide an idol in a random ? block.
After looking at panel 4 three times and wondering why we're seeing three sole survivors in it I remembered that the first AllStars season preview didn't show all actual returnees as well.
At least Damon, Stagg, Tialayla and Bowser are pretty much confirmed. I would appreciate it if that's really Vinnie we're seeing as well but panel 8 better be a newcomer and NOT Amelia...
Very promising preview indeed. Looking forward to the full cast release now.
@SkySurfer: I actually didnt even notice I put 3 winners in that panel lol
It's worth mentioning that the man in the pink shirt highly resembles Frank from Seasons 9 and 10. Blue eyes, beardo, grey hair.
I hope I'm wrong, because Frank doesn't seem like the kind of player to warrant a third shot.
@Guest: It looks more like a police officer to me.
@Guest: Frank could have a very interesting loved one...
@SWSU-Master: That almost sounds like a direct confirmation, lol
I'm back, ladies and gents! It's wonderful to see everyone again and even more wonderful to see a new season in the works! I'm really enjoying all the changes made so far, and that's not just because I enjoyed the actual Blood vs. Water season. Changing up the setting is a lovely change of pace and I'm rather excited to see who comes back.
@Sonofhades: I will say though SJDS > BvW
OHHH SHIT THIS IS AWESOME!!
OK Bowser's coming back, the only beacon of light in SFC 12! Well him and Spongebob. Ohh bring Bob here too with Patrick. But for Bowser the obvious beat-your-head-with a club loved one is Bowser Jr. But I think Peach would be more interesting.
Stagg! His wife is here with him. If you can't see that you didn't look at the comic.
Damon! I don't got a fucking clue. Maybe the Blond dude on the blocks in Panel 7.
I would murder someone to have Sponegbob and Patrick, also Kala and Dmitri (was that his name? been forever since I looked at SFC4) Ky and and a robot loved one would be interesting as well.
I love the setting, Mario's always been my favorite series (yes I like it better than Pokemon, shocking I know) I love that one of the challenges looks like it's in the old school Donkey Kong arcade game. 25M or 75M? OK now i'm just rambling. So hyped for this though.
@Blastoise_FTW: While other series would likely make more sense for Survival Elements. Mario World just offered so much in terms of challenges
CIERA VOTED OFF HER MOM
Who's gonna do it in this season?
Omg, I'm so excited for this ^_^
...Oh, right, comments are a thing.
Okay, gonna get the stuff everyone knows out of the way.
Stagg, Damon, Tialayla, and Bowser are obviously back, the rest are up to speculation.
However, I'd like to comment on the location. Since this is set in the Mushroom Kingdom, wouldn't it be possible for them to use performance enhancing drugs? *cough* Mushrooms *cough*
Also, is it just me, or has the sprite for Jeff been updated? I swear his feet weren't that big before. And you know what they say 'bout guys with big feet.
They have to wear large shoes.
...Get your mind out of the gutter.
Anyway, with the potential this season is showing from a mere preview, two panels not even showing it off, I am excited to read through it with everyone.
I can never end comments well.
@Robolax7: Yeah I noticed Jeff looked weird too. He looks tan and he's got clown shoes, WTF
@Blastoise_FTW: Part of the new look
@Robolax7: The feet have gotten bigger in my sprites lol
It better be worth the wait.... and it is already. :)
@qazox: Thats good to hear lol
I just read all the Comics and finally im here and im gonna start a new season with you guys :D
@lucasmaximo15: Glad to have you on board!
@anime9001: thank you
@lucasmaximo15: Welcome to Survivor Fan Characters! Glad to have you!
@Sonofhades: Thank you i have being here i long time now but i have to read all the comics first
@lucasmaximo15: Hopefully this season delivers
@SWSU-Master: Im sure is going to like always, just i would love to know when is gonna start lol
Yeah finally the preview, which means one more month until the premiere :)
@Austin0017: Thats correct
HOLYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY YYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY YYYYYYYY PICKLES, WERE BACK, (Cough) finally (cough)
@Thenewdonut: Yeah, sorry about the delay lol
@SWSU-Master: Oh it's nothing
I swear if that is Amelia I will scream in fear.
Cant wait for bowser back tho lololol
@Sweetcupcakes: Maybe Amelia has an interesting loved one....
@SWSU-Master: "That almost sounds like a direct confirmation, lol"
@DryIceBros: Kill Me.
@Blastoise_FTW: amelia's creator said that they didn't get a note saying she could return, so I doubt it.
@Blastoise_FTW: Here,(gives gun) u shoot me with the gun then I can shoot u at the same time.
IM SO READY
Im so fucking ready for this season :DDDD ive been waiting forever
one more week until the cast releases?
Too lazy to log in, but I'm praying bowsers loved one is peach
@SweetCupcakes: Remember in the first comic of SFC 12 when the fan character from Bowser's season (Luke) was like "Guys, it's going to be Mario, they're saving the biggest star until last!" and it turned out to be Bowser? I could totally see SWSU pull the opposite here.
Bowser: "Bwahaha! And I see you're saving my beloved Princess Peach for last!"
Jeff: "And last but certainly not least.....MARIO!"
Personally, I think I want to see Bowser Jr. But Peach would be very good as well (although would feel a LOT like Aqua-Marie I would think....)
@anime9001: Luke was on SFC4. I think you meant Mike.
@GaryHawkinsLandscaper: Oh, haha. I forgot his name so I backtracked comics up to when the canons are revealed and his eye is twitching when someone calls him Luke. I forgot this was a joke due to Mike's reaction to Bowser's reveal was similar to Luke's reaction to Sephiroth. My bad~
@anime9001: I would love to see her but like not aqua marine type, I want to see peach first like the princess who needs to be rescued and with time she starts to change, voted out people, learns how to defend herself, and just transform on a new version of Parvati lol
@SweetCupcakes: it's bowser jr. you can see him in Panel 9. (compare his sprite to Bowser's in Panel 8)
I have a question. A few years ago I posted an application for my character, and a second application immediately after that because the first was riddled with spelling errors and missing information. Now after looking over the 2nd one I sent I believe it's still missing some important information about my character. So my question is if I could submit a revised and edited version of the application you have. All that would change would be some information, everything else including appearance and attitude will stay the same. So am I allowed?
@ChaoticCross: Yeah you can do that.
I'm callin' it now, the cast releases will start on Valentines Day
@Niftyness: Or Tonight
@SWSU-Master: That would also work. :P
