A War Medal is awarded by the Council depending on which army you led to victory in the Mysterious Island War, and how many sidequests you accomplished. Completing a side quest in the other army's fatigues does not count towards a medal.

References

  • The quest rewards when fighting on the hippy side are a reference to Lucky Charms cereal, which contains marshmallow shapes of all of the badges shown. The combination of color and shape does tend to remind one of, for instance, "Purple Heart" medals.
  • The Hippy quest rewards also bear a striking similarity to some of the Eight Virtues as described in the Ultima games -- Honesty, Compassion, Valor, Justice, Sacrifice, Honor, Spirituality and Humility.
  • The quest rewards when fighting on the frat boy side, comparatively, are Greek letters, ranging in order from first (Alpha) to last (Omega), all with accompanying metallic descriptors.
  • The Frat Orc rewards seem to be some (but not all) of Benjamin Franklin's "13 Virtues" which included Temperance, Silence, Order, Resolution, Frugality, Industry, Sincerity, Justice, Moderation, Cleanliness, Tranquility, Chastity, and Humility. The virtues chosen seem to be those which best serve as opposites to the seven deadly sins.
