Well done on finishing the challenge. I could see potential in this game with its crafting system and world building. Unfortunately, I struggled hard with the user interface and the visible incompleteness (such as only having Kobolds, unimplemented features that were shown in menus, and all wands functioning as fireballs).
The interface could use with some streamlining. Having to type long commands (such as 'incantation') is a really good way of discouraging me to use them. Consider too whether you could use the .net version of Ncurses or something to limit the refresh issues.
I realise that it's tough to work to finishing something in 7 days - and I'm impressed with everybody who can. If I may offer advice for future challenges: work on constraining the scope of what you make. Making something small and polished is often better then making something with the seeds of greatness that falls short in other areas.
I look forward to seeing what happens if you continue to work on it. Well done on creating a successful entrant.
