Anime Survival Book 8 Chapter 95
"Welcome to Greed Island."
"You must be Mr.James Art."
"I will now explain how the game works."
"Would you care to listen?"
James refused because he remembered the rules of Greed Island perfectly.
The main elements to remember in Greed Island were the following:
The Ring : All players will have a ring that allows them to use two keyword spells in the game (and is also required to join the game):
1. Book- by saying the keyword "Book", it will cause a Card Binder to materialize for the player's personal use to stash cards.
2. Gain- by saying the keyword "Gain", an item in its card form will turn back into its material form but can't return to its card form again.
The Binder : the Card Binder has a total of100 specified card slots; the goal of the game is to collect and fill these slots with the properly specified cards. There are also a total of 45 unnumbered free slots in the binder for storing"undesignated"numbered cards.
The Cards : All items that are picked up on the island transform intocards, these items can be materialized into item form again by holding it and saying "Gain". If the item is not placed in the binder within a minute, cards that are turned into items cannot be returned into their card form again.

Card Rank/Acquisition Difficulty Levels :
Each card has a difficulty level that's written on the upper right of the card. There are a total of 10 levels as listed below, from the most difficult to the easiest to get in the game.
SS, S, A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H
Maximum Card Transformations Limit :
There is a limit on how many times an item can be transformed into its card form. The item can only be transformed into its card form a certain number of times. Once that number has been reached no other player can turn that item into a card, the higher the card rank is, the lower its Card Transformations Limit would be.
"In this case I wish you the best luck."
"Please take those stairs."
A staircase suddenly appeared on the floor, James without saying a word went down the stairs and a few seconds later he saw a beautiful and green landscape.
He calmly observed the landscape for a moment and quickly noticed the presence of several people.
"Didn't your mothers ever teach you that it was wrong to spy on others?"
Gon who came down several minutes later saw no trace of James but he saw several players with their bodies covered in blue, passed out on the ground or m.o.a.ning miserably, he could even see the teeth of a few on the ground.
"Mr. James can be terrifying at times."
. . . .
James walked quietly, in front of him was his book of spells in which he put several cards.
"I should thank these idiots the next time I see them, if I'd known he was going to win me so many cards, I would have hit them less violently."
"I now have the cards: 042Fledgling Novelist (Egg of Superb Writing) B-30, 034University Survey (Anything Questionnaire)B-30, 020 Mood Clock(Mind Spirit Meter)B-30, 025Risky Dice (Risky Die)B-30, 011 Golden Scales (Golden Balance) B-30, 101Map of the Island 'detailed'D-70 and 607J10,000 H- 10,000J x 25 add to this more than 18 different spell cards."
"But I didn't come to Greed Island to play, I'm sure finishing the game will give me a lot of points, but I just have to join Gon and Killua towards the end, the most important thing for me right now is my training."
It was now September 6, 1999, it was night at Yorknew and evening at Greed Island, James was getting ready for one of the most important events in the world that will happen next year.
And for him Greed Island was the best place to train for that.
He released a slight amount of aura from his body but unlike the usual translucent white aura his aura was completely black with a reddish hint.
"My alter-ego transmitted his will to me through his nen, I am a new person but a little bit of him too, I will use this will to become even stronger."
The Nen, by its very definition, is the representation of the will or spirit of a person who can, if he or she reaches an unshakeable level of determination, survive the death of his or her owner.
His current reserve of aura sublimated by his death had already reached the terrifying quantity of about 64,000 units.
