"Warrior" in Wanasgard's writeup implies (to me at least) the Grazer
keyword as well as the Jardan the Warrior keyword. And I was short of
words, what with needing to detail allies/followers (even with
fudging the animals).
I believe it's no longer mentioned, but a version of the Hero Wars
rules suggested that Narrators allow extra words for information
important to their game (such as clan affiliation). I'm in this boat
as well -- IIRC in my Jrusteli game I gave players whatever words
they needed to mention their city of origin.
As for Wanasgard, he didn't have an unusual (for a Grazer Warrior)
relationship with great or lesser spirits, so I didn't mention
And I don't think the typical Warrior does have the same sort of
personal relationship with Jardan as a Heortling weaponthane would
with his deity.

[Name] is a [occupation Keyword] from [Name of Clan/Tribe/town etc -
Implies Culture Keyword] and a [Magic Keyword. Now write another
100/95/90 (depending on how much of the template you want to include)
words to 'flesh out' your character.
I'd only allow 1 (set of) keywords here, although others may still be
taken as normal (so "Devotee of Orlanth Adventurous" would not count,
but "and an initiate of Yinkin" would, for example.
