Fair enough. Since I can't say I've ever actually seen this 'normal' adventuring day happen at a table in play, my judgement may be skewed. :p
I've never seen it happen at normal rest speed. The only times I've seen it are with some variation of it takes about a week for a long rest to happen. That way the DM can have one encounter on day 1, none on day 2, two on day 3, none on days 4 and 5, three on day 6, and one on day 7. Insert long rest then. The PCs have to sleep every night, but the long rest only happens around the 7th day.

Yeah that seems a more reasonable pace. You know I've had multiple DMs express commitment to running a "gritty realistic" game, and the only rest variant I ever saw was to make short rests more difficult.. and it didn't even matter since we weren't getting multiple short rests anyway. Table variation is something else.

Sounds like an elven conspiracy to devalue dwarven mining interests..next thing you know we'll be using wooden ("sylvan") nickels.
How about we replace currency with stabilized Goodberries? You could be literally paid in days of sustenance, with only the royal mages being allowed to make that particular type of long lasting goodberry to control the supply :p

I kind of love the idea of re-casting druids as super aggro hypercapitalists. Elven skyscrapers built on the backs of the downtrodden. Meanwhile the dwarves are your peacenik, "return to mother earth" culture.
