I think the medals are a good addition and that they may encourage players to explore some of the overlooked corners of the game. I certainly wouldn't suggest a medal for every possible mouse click, but there do seem to be a few overlooked medal possibilities:

* 'Emerged from the Abandoned Factory Alive'
* 'Received a blessing from the Old Church'
* 'Drank a Gargleblaster and survived'
* 'Died from a slice of poisoned cake'

Other suggestions for medals?

Those medals have already been made, Zpatula; they've simply yet to be implemented.

..says the person who made about three hundred of the bastards and has many more to go.

And a fine job you have done.

Will there be a medal for 'Owns a humming sphere'? By the way, has that thing hatched yet? Eek!

I have no idea what yer talking about.

Will there be a medal (or a use for) the rare and old coin?


Yes, I have a dream, of electronic sheeps and linen bedsheets. But that's not the point. Or isn't it?

Glue a ribbon onto the back of it and it is a medal! Big Grin

CakeFail is available, but understandably rare.
Wonder how many people will be losing a lot of charm to get the Skronky Disaster medal.
I did.

Use all your charm in the gauntlet first, and then do it!

I'm just annoyed that it hasn't remembered my previous Skronky fail by me hacking into the pot again... But I suppose I could use some more HP anyway.

Z, do you have an 'I was broomed by Phyllis and all I got was a lousy medal' medal?

That's still pretty much a theory, mate... He hasn't finished with us.

Another idea:

"I lost my epic chariot, and all I got was this lousy medal."

What about an "expert medal collector," "supreme medal collector," etc. set?

Now you're just getting ridiculous.

But yeah...Surviving Phyllis, S(t)ink, Paul, G, calli, etc. should earn a medal...

Much love, fellow GERMans! XD


Isn't sanity just a one-trick pony anyway? All you get is one trick: rational thinking. But when you're good and crazy, oooh, oooh, the sky's the limit.

Ridiculous? As pertaining to the Island? Big Grin

IMHO it'd be perfectly in keeping with the humour of the game. Medals aren't worth a damned thing, after all and there'll be 300 or more of them coming.

I'm damned sure there'll be people who make it their life task to collect as many as they can...

So a medal collector's set - say, one for each 100 medals collected - would fit in quite well.

I'm all for self-referencing meta-medals. In fact, I really hope there's a " 'Medal Collectors Medal' Collectors Medal", that you recieve when you get the whole collection of the medal collecting medals. See http://xkcd.com/688/ for details
