The '''Medusa effect''' occurs when there is more than one patch occupying the same column in any middle texture of a two-sided linedef that is visible in the display window. Due to a game engine limitation, these will not display properly. The area where the middle texture would be displayed is instead a series of multicolored horizontal lines. This "wall" of multicolored lines appears to extend infinitely into the floor.

Conversation

Conversations or dialogues are a feature of Strife: Quest for the Sigil, allowing peaceful interactions with NPCs. A conversation takes place between the player and one NPC, sometimes with added commentary by BlackBird. Plot-relevant conversations usually feature a full-screen portrait of the character and voice-acting for his lines. During a conversation, inventory items can be given to or taken from the player (which is how shopping is implemented).
