Since the old thread is over 130 pages long and clogged up with unuseful information from the old times when we were trying to figure them out, here is a new Medals Guide. I am reposting the first 5 posts of the old thread. Please keep it clean and simple. All medals are pretty much confirmed, so there is no need to reconfirm them once you get a medal. However, any contradicting info with what is stated, please post it so we can check it.
Also, please post new found medals and ways to get them. I will keep the thread up to date.

Here is a link to the old thread, if anybody needs access to some of the posts there:

Medals FAQ

What are medals?
Medals are awards you can earn through completing certain tasks and fulfilling certain requirments.

How do I know if I have earnt a medal?
You will recieve a report, much like this one:


What do I get?
You get an icon for each medal. Up to four of these icons can be shown on your profile at any one time for others to see.

How do I see my medals?

Click on the 'Character' button on the left-hand menu, and you will see the four medals you are displaying. This icon is called your 'Medal Box'. To see the rest of your medals, click on the medal box (anywhere on your avatar). You can then scroll through the pages to see all medals earned. If you hover your mouse over each one, you can see what the medal is and when it was earned. (You can also do this to see other people's medals)


How do I know what I did to earn each medal?
It is not explained. Sometimes, it will be very clear because you perform an action and then earn an award. Sometimes, it won't be so clear. In the posts below, we are trying to collate all the medals that can be earned and how they are earnt. Some of these are just guesses though.

How do I choose which medals to display?
When you have the medal box opened, click and drag the medal you wish to display into one of the display boxes.

Adventurer Set (Not specific to the adventurer character class)
1) Adventurer (Bronze) - Complete 10 quests.
2) Veteran Adventurer (Silver) - Complete 50 quests.

*
Sleeping Set
1) Sleepyhead (Silver) - Sleep two full times in a hotel or barracks uninterrupted by any activity that uses energy.
2) Sleepwalker (Gold) - Sleep three full times in a hotel or barracks uninterrupted by any activity that uses energy.


Apparently (according to Dj Storm), the sleeping doesn't have to be continuous, but you can't do any activities that require energy. So you can sleep for 8 hours in a hotel or 6 hours in a barracks, pray, sit idly, walk to a town, fort, or quest giver, and fight in a fort battle before sleeping another 8 hours in a hotel or 6 hours in a barracks and still get the Sleepyhead medal when you're done.
*
Fort Fighter Set
1) Fort Fighter (Bronze) - Take part in one fort battle.
2) Veteran Fort Fighter (Silver) - Take part in 25 fort battles.

2) Backpacker (Silver) - Sleep for 50 x 8 hours in a foreign hotel or allied fort barracks.

2) Donkey Driver Through Field and Valley (Silver) - Travel 10000 miles on a donkey.
3) From East to West, Phew! (Gold) - Travel 20000 miles on a quarter horse.


On all of these the mount (or no mount for the walking medal) apparently must be equipped for the entire trip, not just when the trip is queued. Travel doesn't need to be continuous. Requirements are actual distances traveled, not time. If you're trying to achieve any of these medals, distance = % speed / 25 * (hours + minutes / 60 + seconds / 3600).

Note: Despite the fact that there is a bronze, silver, and gold medal, unlike the other bronze-silver-gold medal groups, you don't need to get them in order.

The Wreath Medals

Some medals come with the gold medal, but with a green wreath around them in the icon. These are 'one off' medals, in that they don't seem to have silver or bronze counterparts. These are the known ones:

Trainee Builder - For levelling up (experience wise) from the experience earned from construction any town building (leveling up from the experience gained from fort construction does not reward the medal).

*
Construction Fool - For building with 0% motivation.

*
Raise the Flag - Find the product 'Union Flag' from the job 'Guarding the Fort' (If you have a flag from before medals were introduced, just equip it in the product slot to get the medal) [Formerly just called "The Flag"]

*
Development Aid Volunteer - For spending nuggets.

*
BETA WORLD ONLY - Annoying Critter - For reporting a bug.

*
You are loved - For completing the Valentine's Day quests. The first version, with the chocolate, is for males and the second version, with the rose, is for females.

*

Go directly to jail, do not pass go... - For completing "Money on wheels", Maya's decision in The railroad's journey of conquest.

With the new 1.30 update you can track progress and look on this thread so you will
know how much quests, duels etc to go until the medal.
 

Cowboy Lincoln

1) "And I Could Walk 500 Miles, ..." (Bronze) - Travel 333 miles on foot.

Travel 5000 on foot.

It's a lot easier because you can see it at your statistics page.


2) Donkey Driver Through Field and Valley (Silver) - Travel 666 miles on a donkey.
Travel 10.000 on a donkey. Same reason as above.

I tested it by myself ;)

JoxerTM

Hint: You can't get it before you reach level 75.

For real spoilers, check Quest discussion section.

staywithme

Duduie

Any kind of medal can be openly discussed here. Thus the spoiler alert in the title. So Joxer, spit it out. :)
 

JoxerTM

Ok, you asked for it.

In order to receive "mystery solved" medal you have to complete The Golden Gun Quest.

The complete solution to The Golden Gun / Three Key Quest is available in Quest discussion area inside this sticky thread:
