What is Salan?

Salan is a Bronze Age fantasy world, and my world building hobby for the past 15 years :) I have written some stories set in it, and might publish some stories or set RPG campains in it later, but I'm motly just working for the pure fun of the process.  
In a world ruled over by the Gods and the Giants, can the different human cultures unify despite their differences and rise to prosperity?
My current story is set deep in the prehistory of Salan, where the mighty Stone Giants have enslaved the early humans, and have become such a threat to the balance of the world, that even the Gods fear them. Can the heroic twins Daursan and Kauteirin unify the different human cultures, and set the course for the future prosperity of the men?
