I just discovered the game on Christmas day, 2012. I'm an impoverished player playing a pricey game. I don't plan on spending much but bought a raid card pack to start out. In it came a single UR, “Frigid Death Jeremias” – I count myself lucky and Jeremias has been my leader since then for 90% of the time. It's a card that wasn't seen often (until reprinted) and I still have the original and use it as a great backliner.
I can be reached in many ways. I've listed a few of them in the order of which I will respond to you quickest:

Blog Posts of Interest
I sometimes post a blog detailing in-game information. Since these blog posts are generally full of data, I format them into tables rather than paragraphs in order to organize the data in a concise way. Here is a list of my blog posts that you may or may not find interesting:
- GOLDLIST: a list of trustworthy players, skillers, enhancers and more! If in need of a service or just wondering who to trust, this repository should help.
- Amphitere's Collectibles: a list of cards in my presents.
- Skilling Probabilities: a main page that branches off into many tables that show the probability of any single-card skill enhance.
- Steam Chaos Casino Accumulated Winnings: every casino reward I've received since I started recording.
Amphitere’s Gifting Services
I provide the first ever Legend of the Cryptids’s Gifting Service! It was the only gifting service available at the time of conception, and people say they have never before seen one prior to then. Thus, it follows it is the longest running gifting service available with the most outstanding reputation!
Basically, you send trade with any number of unbound items and I place them into your presents for you. Once finished, I'll charge 1 for every 5 gift items sent. This "1" can be paid by either gifting me or making a trade containing any one of:
- 1 × Power Potion
- 1 × Energy Drink
- 1 × any Rare [Note: any Rare EX will settle 2]
- 6 × any skilled Commons
- 3 × any skilled Common EXs
- 3 × Mighty Baby Dragons
- 2 × Mighty Young Dragons
- 400,000 Coins
A list of players with outstanding debts will be kept for future reference. If debt is not paid within 48 hours, the ID will be blacklisted and I won't be dealing with that player in the future.
Update: the gifting service is now pretty much obsolete due to the card boxes available (it's about time), but I'll still honor any gifting requests sent to my iOS ID: Amphitere.
Don't throw too much money into the game for your own sake. There are many reasons, but sudden termination is the only one I'll mention. Your account is entirely in the hands of the game developers, Applibot. You own nothing, so every dollar sent their way is a dollar you have no chance of ever getting back. If you feel that dollar was spent well, nobody is judging you.
However, whenever spending money on the game, keep in mind “sudden termination” always lurks around the next bend. It cannot be predicted, nor controlled by you and can happen in a number of ways. Off the top of my head:
- Account take-down: Applibot can (and does) suspend its players’ accounts on a whim. They may or may not let you know why you can no longer play the game nor do they let you in on if you'll ever be able to play again. If this has happened to you, as it did to me (a month suspension), you can email the designers and try to make a case. They may respond, or may entirely ignore you.
- Device take-down: the device you play on could crap out if it is:
- dropped and simply breaks.
- left somewhere inaccessible: in the case of one of my guildies, another country.
- drowned: for heaven's sake, stop playing the game when pissing! The toilet is an excellent device-destroyer.
- faulty: yes, your device could stop working while you're using it at anytime.
- Financial take-down:
- Applibot decides to sell and walk away with all your money.
- Their programmers all strike, then quit. Company can't pay their bills in time and go bankrupt.
- Japan goes to war or it's financial situation is changed in a way that makes the game operation unfeasible.
- It could be as simple as a family squabble, or two of the top people hate each other, bringing down the company.
- Virtual take-down:
- Hackers take the servers off-line, or corrupt the data.
- Some crazy virus/worm infects the company, erasing all data.
- A massive power surge could corrupt data.
- Physical take-down:
- Tokyo is known for its earthquakes, any of which could wipe Applibot off the map without notice.
- A fire could burn down the building.
- Tsunami. Need I say more?
- Server infrastructure is interrupted by a massive solar flare, or destroyed entirely by war.
- etc… etc… etc… you have an imagination as well.
So enjoy the game, but please don't take it too seriously…
