I have been playing Rise of Rome a lot lately because it is one of few games with Scenarios with events of the 1st to 2nd Centuries AD. The Scenarios helped familiarize myself with the period when Christianity began. Below I am listing chronologically all Scenarios that I know of for this time period or slightly before it. They are in the "AOE Heaven" Granary. I marked an X next to the names showing that I beat them unless they were glitched. For Scenarios part of a Campaign, I am indenting their titles. They are in three categories: Maps (including those for the Levant), Single Player Scenarios, and Multiplayer Scenarios.

My main question for the thread is whether you know of other Scenarios touching directly on this period.

MAPS
X Land of Canaan (Map) / Land of Canaan Map with Indigenous Powers (1050-700 BC)(Beat it on Moderate)
X [REAL] Maps / "8 real world maps"
_____X #1 The Middle East - Persia - 8 player - I beat it on Easy.
_____X #1 The Middle East Region 800 BC - I beat it handily on Easy.
_____X #2 Eastern Meditteranean - 8 player - I beat it on Easy.
_____X #2 Eastern Meditteranean 500 BC - I beat it on Moderate.
_____X #3 Meditteranean Sea 200 BC - When I try to Load this scenario for Play or in my Scenario Editor, my game crashes.
_____X #6 The Levant 1200 BC - I beat it on Moderate.
_____X #8 India 150 AD - I beat it handily on HARD, as Player 1 begins loaded with thousands of resources.
X Middle East (North) Map / Middle East (North) Map with Roman-Parthian Wars (Late 1st cent. BC - 7th c. AD) (I Beat it on Moderate, and designed and submitted the "Roman-Parthian Wars" version as a separate Scenario.)

SINGLE PLAYER CAMPAIGNS AND SCENARIOS

Here I want to give more helpful details about the Multiplayer maps, arranged chronologically, in case people want to play them online. I am giving information like the date, AOE or ROR version, and which players are allied. The ones that are good for playing with Rookies are those due to power imbalances (eg. 2 v. 6 matches), Co-ops, Racing matches, and Handicapped matches.
#6 The Levant 1200 BC (from "8 real world maps" pack), ROR. 2 v. 2 map. The teams are:
Player 1 (Israel) & Player 3 (Syria) vs.
Player 2 (Edom) & Player 4 (Philistea)
I don't know if it matters, but in the Editor, Player 1 is listed as Either Human or Computer, whereas #2-4 are "Computer."

Canaan, ROR, 8 Player Free-for-All with no fixed locations

Land of Canaan Map with Indigenous Powers (1050-700 BC), ROR, 3 v. 3 map:
1. Israel, 2. Phoenicia, 7. Egypt vs.
3. Philistines, 4. Canaanites, 5. Assyria
(Player 6 is inactive (just a war chest that Israel captures) and must be the computer)

#1 The Middle East - Persia - 8 player (from "8 real world maps" pack), ROR, 2 v. 6 map:
1. Persia & 4 Parthen/Parthia v.
2. Egypt 3. Assyria 5. India 6. Scythen 7. Grieken/Greece 8. Hettieten

#1 The Middle East Region 800 BC ("8 real world maps" pack), ROR, Free for All map:
1. Persia v. 2. Egypt v. 3. Assyria v. 4. Media

#2 Eastern Meditteranean - 8 player (from "8 real world maps" pack), ROR, Free for All map with fixed locations:
1. Phoenicia v. 2. Egypt v. 3. Hittites v. 4. Babylon v. 5. Assyria v. 6. Crete
(ironically, it does not have "8 players".)

#2 Eastern Meditteranean 500 BC (from "8 real world maps" pack), ROR, 2 v. 2 map:
1. Phoenicia & 2. Egypt v.
3. Greek & 4. Persia

Middle East (North) Map (from 7 Maps Pack), ROR, Free for All with no fixed locations:
1. Macedonia v. 7 Players

Middle East (North) Map with Roman-Parthian Wars (‎54 BC – 217 AD or Late 1st cent. BC - 7th c. AD), ROR, 3 v. 3. v. 2
1. Parthians & 6. Mesopotamia & 8. Media vs.
2. Roman Syria & 5. Roman Asia Minor & 7. Roman Egypt vs.
3. Passive Armenia (AI) & 4. Osroene (AI)

Actium (Cleopatra Scenario from Pax Romana Multiplayer Campaign, c. 30 BC)
[You must login to view link] ROR Co-op:
1. Octavian (Human) & 5. (Human Ally) vs.
AI Players #2, 3, 4
The Pax Romana Campaign has this note:
    "Make sure that your friend is always the bottom player in the lobby and the last in the numerical/color value. It's not enough that the friend only picks the appropriate color, since the game assigns the "stats" according to the lobby position (Starting age, resources, etc.). It can be done (at least in Gameranger) by kicking your friend after launching the game by assigning an AI player over them. (you'll be prompted to kick them) Set the rest of the AI according to the scenario, and invite your friend back in when you're done."
    However, on Voobly this is not a problem. If I am Player 1 and choose Yellow (3), then I become Player 3 in the game with Player 3's resources.


The Stadium of Tiberius (14 AD to 37 AD), AOE, This is a simple 1 v. 1 racing match. Player 2 should be Rome.

Siege V Masada (67 AD - 73 CE). ROR. This is a 3 v. 1 match, where 3 Judean players fight the strong Roman army.
1. Romans (should be the strongest player) v.
2. Masada (there is a Masada AI file in case they are Computer) & 3. Pharisees & & 4. Sadduccees & 5. Essenes (#2-5 should be Weaker Players or AIs).

Year_of_the_4_Emperors2 (Official Vespasian scenario with the Four Emperors from Pax Romana Campaign, 69 AD), ROR Co-op: #1. & #5. (Human Players) v.
# 2, # 3, #4.

The Year Of the 4 Emperors (by Barbarian)(69 AD), It has a .PER file. It is for only 1-4 Players.The Roman general players 1-4 are allied with #7 Rome (Passive AI Player). Players #5, 6, and 8 are Barbarian tribes.
1. Vespasian vs.
2. Galba (red) vs.
3. Otho (yellow) vs.
4. Vitellius (brown)

The Advance of Antonius / Primus (October 69 AD) 1. v. 1 or 2 v. 1 Match, ROR. Players 2 and 4 are impotent AIs with no usable buildings or units.
1. Antonius Primus (Vespasian's General) & 3. Egyptian Buildings (probably not meant to be played and has 0 starting resources, but Player 1 can tribute it so that it can start a base) vs.
5. Vitellius
I did not realize it when I played it on Single Player, but since you as Player 1 are allied with Player 3 ("Egyptian Buildings", set to the "Defensive" Strategy), you can actually tribute them food and other resources and they will produce villagers and build up defensive forces. I am not sure if the Designer intended this though.


#8 India 150 AD (from "8 real world maps" pack), ROR, 2 v. 2:
Player 1 Gupta (begins loaded with 99999 resources) & 3 Satavahaha. v.
Player 2. Kushans & 4. Satraps

Ctesiphon (from Pax Romana Campaign, 262 AD), ROR Co-op: Players #1. and 6. are the two human players. Only # is allied with chest's your ark's goal city, Ctesiphon (Orange Player 5), meaning that only Player 1 can deliver the chest into the city without having to fight the city.

Queen Zenobia (from Pax Romana Campaign, 266-273), ROR Co-op:

Coming of the Huns (from Pax Romana Campaign, 373 - 453 AD), ROR Co-op: Players 1 and 6 are the Human Players

Armageddon (by Stonefleck), AOE, 4 Player Free-For-All
