Orys and Aegon met at a brothel
The Order of the Paradox and The Seven Kingdoms (henceforth TOP and TSK) both have central themes: TOP identifies with a phenomenal game studio and TSK with the world of Game of Thrones. The compatibility of these themes is great - there is already a great Crusader Kings 2 GoT mod - and so the leadership from both alliances played games long into the night. Somewhere after the third coordinated ‘accidental death and subsequent coronation’, it became clear that our paths were destined to cross for more than a short time, and so a friendship was forged.
