Multiplayer Scenarios at RoNH

First we have a multiplayer scenario from Garant, called "Europe 1934- The Legacy of the Great War". This is actually version 2 of his previous attempt. This scenario if you didnt try out the first version is about a world of the 1930's where World War One didn't go the way it had in reality. Next we have another multiplayer scenario called "Renaissance Italy" by TheWhiteSamurai. This is his first attempt at a multiplayer Scenario, so he wants some feedback on his scenario. Our last multiplayer scenario is from LordDarrigan, with his scenario called "North America 1783". The continent is divided by World's colonial powers. Play as Russia, USA, France, Spain, Great Britain, Denmark and conquer North America by diplomacy, betrayal and war.
