Which is an argument that somewhere in Anuire (or Rjurik, or Brectuer, &c)
there is a war.

Perhaps a better model, would be to take a particular person, like William
Marshal, Philippe le Bon of Burgundy, or what have you, and ask how often
they campaigned. After all, we are playing PC's, not Imperial frontiers.
Such a guide will be most usefull to measure how active a PC might be. Of
course BR PC's might very well ingage in fewer wars (no great king to summon
them against other great kings) but more D&D style adventures, and wars
against humanoids.

Biography is a wonderful source of ideas for adding depth to a PC, and
suggesting ideas for realm actions beyond the usual. It also suggests a lot
of interesting free actions.
