Paying Suspension of Disbelief

Overlooking the annoyance of having to stop playing a game for a few hours unless you want to throw money at it micro-transactions are weird from a story perspective. It’s a little weird for adventurers to suddenly have more energy elixirs, healing potions, or golden keys, as if discovering forgotten loot in some overlooked bag of holding. Where are they really coming from? Where are their newly spent gold/ astral diamonds/ doughnuts/ credits going?

It’s just plain weird.
