Achievements are awards earned by the Watcher for completing tasks or meeting objectives in active Kingdoms (kingdoms that still have Quest Points). Note that some achievements can be obtained even by Sims who are inactive in the current quest but who still fulfill the condition with a random autonomous action (e.g. a bard reciting their 50th poem). Each achievement adds points to the Watcher Achievement Level. These points vary depending on how difficult the achievement's objective was.
There are three types of achievements: Game, Kingdom, and Sim.
- Game Achievements can be completed over any number of kingdoms or heroes.
- Kingdom Achievements must be completed within a single kingdom
- Sim Achievements must be completed by a single hero.
- Medals awarded for completing Kingdom Ambitions are a fourth type and count towards the Watcher Achievement Level, though they are not listed in the Achievement Book.
The Pirates & Nobles expansion adds new achievements tallied in a second Achievement Book.
