Senate

In addition to being a patriot spawn point and obtaining Policy upgrades, the Senate in Bronze Dawn also functions as a surveillance system. It reveals hidden enemy units, and also has a scalable LOS. Since most buildings in Bronze Dawn are devoid of LOS, it is important for you to set up your Senate properly in order to cover your settlements. Other buildings such as Forts and Towers do have good LOS but these are limited, so you should be careful.

Note that the adoption cost structures for Governments are similar to those in Warbirth.
