You know, I wonder how they explain away the food costs at Sea? Cause 24 meals a day is way too much.

Or is there a "When supplies allow it" portion that saves them?

Adventurers make so much money.

They do. They really really do. By 3rd level, an average adventurer has more wealth than most small towns

Thought experiment time.

PC's get this obcene amount of wealth to keep the tools adventures use to bypass problems out of the hands of the villagers who would naturally use said tools to improve their daily lives in a way inconvinent for setting writers (same as Reid Richard inventions). Price of said items also scale quadraticaly to make it more difficult for low level adventures to skip steps in gear progression and instead save up straight for the better item. What if these two premises were null? What if magical items were cheap enough that everybody could afford them? What if saving up for a +5 holy avenger was something you could pull off by 6th if you pinched your pennies? How would this change the world?

Sounds like a Merchant game at that point.

If legendary +5 weapons were easily available then, that would make the world both safer, and more deadly.

Any monster that could wield a weapon would instantly become much more dangerous, as they'd all be using the +5 weapons as well. But, Monsters that couldn't use weapons, would find themselves pretty much dead.

Forge Clerics would be outlawed in the supposed backwards world you're describing, as would anyone with a "Fabricate" spell, as they'd be able to make "Priceless" 10-foot poles and ladders and so on.

Magic item creators would be the common worker, and carpenters would be the ones with all the gold.

Sounds like that old magic empire in Faerun at that point. The difference would be "scale of power" and "potency of skill". More likely, it would just shift the schism. +6 Holy Avenger would probably still be more expensive, but even farmers could probably get a Cube Of Force and +2 Verminbane Sickle

You'd have a setting where magic replaces technology and folks live comfortably with many conveniences. (Prestidigitation alone is something everybody can use on a daily basis)

I actually have an NPC that makes some items that are purely for NPC convenience. Clothes you need to attune to that are enchanted with the prestidigitation spell and a canteen of holding that can only hold liquids and only dispenses them into the users mouth for example.

Don't worry, they have some small orange trees onboard.

For most crews, leaving port with your entire cargo capacity filled with food is foolish and you're going to end up wasting some of it unless it's a REALLY long-range voyage.

For the straw hats, it's just good sense.
