After a few centuries of wary peace, the Inferno Cult recommenced their ancient war against the Monks of Poseidon. Both sides are recruiting humans to join the fight. However, as the enchanted charms associated with each side work best with squirrels, they have devised a spell that allows humans to transform into a squirrel at will. A spell will only transform the player into a squirrel of the enchanter's side, and a pirate may only have one spell at a time. The spell is activated only when the player chooses, or in Angry Squirrel Pass.
This can be seen as a land-based version of privateering, as you will gain points for defeating players and NPCs of the opposing group. These points can be spent on rewards at the bases.
