The itemized donkey shirt is...awesome

It makes for a funny joke, but I can't get past the prices. A 10' pole, 7 gp? Where do they live, a desert? Maybe they have a major termite problem? Gaming has always featured somewhat dubious pricing systems, but those prices are in a whole different league.

 

Merchant one, "I will carefully combine malted barley, hops and yeast, properly ferment and age it, and then I will sell five gallons for 3 gp."

Merchant two, "I will farm hemp, carefully harvest the plants, separate the fibers, weave it into sturdy, supple ropes, then sell 50' lengths for 5 gp."

Merchant three, "I will cut this sapling from my backyard, then I will sell it...for 7 gp."

Merchant four, "I will raise this small animal for two years, caring for it, training and feeding it, then I will sell it...for 10 gp."

Not to mention the impacts of adventurers returning with a bunch of loot, and immediately dumping a lot of wealth into the local economy.  That could have huge impacts to the basic stability of the region with the resulting inflation and potential run on goods.

I was going to post a link to a OotS strip that covers this, but I think that one was a print-only page.
