Agendas (from RoE) where designed to be difficult to achieve without conflict (between realms) and easier to achieve with conflict.
So a country with a larger more powerful neighbour might have an agenda to eclipse them, hard to do, but easier if you start sabotaging your neighbour.
So an example agenda for the ST could be to become the dominant guilder in N + 1 realms (where N is the number that they are naturally dominant in) pushing you to have to fight another realm, or mirroring the current war with the HS you could have an agenda to slay or divest the current regent of the HS and destroy the domain.
The benefit of an agenda is that you holdings, absent other direction, will try to act in line with the agenda.
Completing the agenda can result in bonus bloodline, stability increases (to hard to achieve higher levels), special LT's or other rewards.
About agendas, is there any chance we could make it a regent action to add a minor agenda? Instead of a realm action. Would make it easier to use.
Long time for an answer to come:
I understand that with Trade ventures, diplomacy, wage war, preparation of spells, rule province and so on, it can be increasingly difficult to find the action to change or set an agenda. That, however doesn't diminish the effort that should be employed when setting agenda's for an entire domain. So while such a change would make the action easier to use, I don't see it as thematically in line with the effort needed to accomplish the task.
