Survivor: The Cursed Idol is the first season of Ian's Survivor fan fiction series and is also the first fan fiction in the Survivor Fanon Wiki.


  • The Cursed Idol: After a castaway gets voted out, he/she has a last move before permanently leaving the game. The Cursed Idol. Before getting his torch snuffed, this player will have a chance to still somehow change the game, even after his demise. The eliminated player will be given this object, and delivers it to one of the remaining players. The recipient of this idol will receive an additional one vote the next time this person goes to Tribal Council. Even when his tribe wins an Immunity Challenge, the Cursed Idol is still in play and will st`ill count against the player who receives it the next time he goes to Tribal Council. The only way to defuse the power of the Cursed Idol, is if the recipient uses a Hidden Immunity Idol, or win an individual Immunity Challenge (after the merge). The Cursed Idol is still valid up until Day 37. The producers created this dreaded item to further remove the possibility of a tie vote, and also to give an opportunity to the eliminated contestant to screw the remaining players up, as an act of revenge for their removal. There will be two Cursed Idols, one for each tribe.When the tribes merge, only one Cursed Idol will be in play.
  • Hidden Immunity Idols: A clue will be provided when a tribe wins a Reward Challenge. This clue will be hidden at camp as well, similar to Survivor: South Pacific.The clues provided if a tribe wins a Reward Challenge. So if a tribe switch occurs, and a swapped player with a clue looks after the idol, his/her clue is also usable at that camp.

Author's Notes

  • This season's theme is inspired by Philippine mysticism and the Spanish occupation of the Philippines from 1521-1898. The Anting-anting(or agimat) is a small talisman, usually made of metal, and with Latin engravings, which is used to either protect the wearer (usually a warrior) from exorcism and other forms of sorcery (this would be the Hidden Immunity Idol of the season). The Cursed Idol is the libreto, a type of talisman, usually a triangular shaped charm, with an eye engraving (similar to the Millennium Items from the anime, Yu-Gi-Oh!) from that is intended to set forth a curse to whoever is attacking the wearer. Agimats are either worn (with the risk of being vulnerable when the amulet is taken out of the body); or ingested, to keep the amulet's powers until the wearer's death. Revolutionaries are said to wear these amulets for protection.
  • The Tribal Council set is inspired by the oldest district of Manila, Intramuros (Spanish for "within the walls"). This "walled city" was the seat of government of the Spanish government during its 333 year reign in the country. Most of the walls were obliterated by the Japanese during World War II. In 1979, then-Philippine President, Ferdinand Marcos spearheaded the restoration of the walls. Today, Intramuros is a historical park and a must-see tourist destination. Other than housing most of Manila's most important government officials during the Spanish era, the walled city is also home to some of the country's oldest universities.
