See and that is the problem ...
Game provides you mechanics, you refuse to use them, game even tells you that you SHOULD use them, you ignore that either ... and then you dont like the outcome. :-/
In fact whole game (maybe except two, three fights) can be done without spending single spellslot.

You call that "good roleplay" ... and all you see is your HP and number of used spellslosts ...
Your character just woke up after being abducked by aliens, survived flyting through hell, escaped that ship and multiple times fight bunch of brain-tentacle-claw beasts ...
If that is not enough to demand a little rest, i really dont know what is. laugh

Next time i shall answer for this argument, i start quoting myself ...
But lets repeat. laugh

There is reason for this to happens at night, during day your characters are solving most pressing matters, at evening (or night if you wish) they have free time, therefore there is enought space for reading, thinking, playing with githyanki toys, and talking.
Its just that word people uses so often around here to justify their own opinions ... its imersion. laugh

I dont quite see how ...

Either you would need to return to camp for every short rest ... wich sounds both ridiculous and anoying.
Or you would risk stucking gale, or his mirror image in other obejcts ...
Also if you see it from purely RP perspective, it also does not make sence ... just imagine, you just finished fighting the goblins, decide to rest ... and sudently Gale instead of resting decide to spend his spellslot to summon his own mirror image so he can admire himself? laugh

Dunno, maybe ... possibly ... probably ...
But that could be also resolved by simply allowing players to have multiple conversations in row instead of only the last one. O_o
