- Disbandment will occur after the Master and Dragonslayers unanimously agree to the proposal.
- Following the agreement, it will require a 75% majority vote from the general membership. Should it pass, then the alliance is considered to have disbanded.
Paragon declared its existence on 17 March 2010.
It was founded by Rosenator, Tigersgo09, Asmodeus, and R3nowned.
On 23 May 2010, all the founders, except for R3nowned, left Paragon, taking with them a significant amount of strength and members. Paragon's size was halved, and took a year and a half to recover.
In the NEW-DF War, Paragon declared war on the Orange Defense Network in defense of FEAR. They fought for 5 days until peace was reached. While they were damaged greatly, they were proud of our achievements despite being such a small alliance.
During the Grudge War, Paragon declared war on the Global Democratic Alliance, United Sovereign Nations and The Last Republic in defence of FEAR. A few weeks later, GDA, USN and tLR surrendered (in that order).
