Malachite Dreams is a Seven Day Roguelike written for the Ninth Annual Seven Day Roguelike Challenge. Coding on this game ceased 168 hours after it started.
The Malachite Tower is revered throughout the land as the pre-eminent wizardry school for transformation and alteration magic.
You are a young red-dragon wizard who wishes to acquire the green robes of a Master of Transmutation; both because you have a long abiding interest in this field of magic and because you think the colour green would complement your scales.
Entry into the storied halls of the Malachite Tower is not so easy, however. When a wizard seeks entry to the school, they are given a magical talisman. This talisman can send them into a dream world. If they manage to exit that world, they gain entrance! If they don't? Well, they simply never wake up.
Your study and preparations are complete. Good luck!
