case 55:
     strcpy(goLookMessage->lacLineName, "You see a crate.");
     sDealWithMessage(flag_ChnDefault,goColor,"You see a crate.");
break;
Are string literals like this stored in the heap or stack?

Neither. They are embedded in the code of the program itself, and may be placed in read-only data sections, or even live among your functions in code sections. It depends on the compiler and, ultimately, on the linker.
