Æmber is a special currency useable only within the Master Vault. At the moment, Æmber may be used only for transferring Master Vault ownership of a deck or to procure an Event Key (needed to participate in Ghost Galaxy’s cash prize tournaments or qualifying event). Ghost Galaxy has several other plans for fun uses of your Æmber in the future.
Master Vault Æmber provides Ghost Galaxy with a very strong correlation to customers of KeyForge products (i.e. those that buy and discover new decks). It is these customers that allow us to fund programs such as the Vault Tours and cash prize tournaments.
We require that participants in our cash-prize tournaments spend an Event Key from their Master Vault account (which may be obtained by spending 50 Æmber in the Master Vault).
However, some users may not have the time or treasure to accumulate sufficient Æmber to purchase Æmber-only items (such as an Event Key). Therefore, in lieu of deck-purchases, we have made available a way to purchase Æmber directly as an alternative way to contribute to Ghost Galaxy’s organized play efforts.
