But we kinda do know, since after some time our characters starts to complain that they want to rest ... observe that for a while and you can discover some pattern there.

My personal guess is that its tied to real time and not amount of encounters at all.

In the words of the senior NCO instructor at cadet battalion:
“If you ain’t cheating you ain’t trying. And if you got caught you didn’t try hard enough!”
