do you need to be in human form for the ring to work?
No, you just need the ring and patience
What if your summons attack the forest npcs after you join? Because you yourself aren’t killing them but they’re dying or receiving damage in your world. Would that kick you out?

White and orange phantoms do not have the ability to harm forest hunters once you have joined the covenant.
