Hmm, and that's just about all it provides them (and Appear Terrifying in Battle). Everything else is for shamans.

They're not feats, but they are all spirits within the tradition. They are analogous to theist cults.

The Warrior would have access to Jardan's spirits, such as Battle Spirits. One of these spirits would correspond to a feat. I guess you could deal with them using your tradition knowledge, or Spirit Combat.
