Temples were not widespread during the Bronze Age. In place, the ancient world construct altars within specially dedicated enclosures for worship, with the larger temples being built for prestige and propaganda value alike by the upper crust.

In Warbirth, a House of worship (or more commonly called, a "Temple") is a building which expands its host city's influence on national borders, and also improves the host city's ability to defend itself, and functions as the spiritual focus of a settlement, tended by priests who in addition to ensuring the spiritual and physical wellbeing of townsfolk, also aid in the task of instruction and teaching. A house of worship also serves to conduct religion and taxation research, and also recruits low-level chivalric order units for Christian factions. Unlike the original Rise of Kings where Level 1 Science is required, in Warbirth it is Level 1 Civics, reflecting how religion played an important role in civic identity.

Pedagogics Pedagogics[edit]

Knowledge is power, and the ability to argue one's point using rhetoric is a very powerful one indeed especially in societies where power is centralised in its rulers, whether it be a royal family or an oligarchy of elders. The four tiers of Pedagogics research are spread out amongst tso different buildings, with the Assembly hosting the final two. The first level of research, Literacy, can be accessed only from the House of Worship itself
