The brigand is a man who takes over an empty building location found during The Bird And the Beast. He appears along with the brigand boss, and will hold down the node area for ransom and not allow players to build a building on the location until they are paid away.
Players will be unable to construct any tower at the site unless 300,000 coins is paid to them. They will not accept anything less than 10,000 coins or more than 50,000 coins per player, and will only accept one donation per player.
They will last for 30 minutes, or until they are paid away.
