So as mentioned in the Discord: if the primary relationship between them and the province of Mycoria in general is they're a bulwark against other threats in the north and the west: then what threats are these? Why do they have to be there when the Gaulletics could possibly just find a way to kill them or drive them off with the cannons they offer the giants later, and having done that just go back to doing it themselves?

You talk about the area having been barren and lifeless, but how did it become "teeming with life"? That would be a significant detail to know for territory so far north and which would be, to keep up with the themes of the other northern-most kingdoms so far be in as tough a climate as they.

You have a vassal state which seems to have a slave caste - though I am assuming that's not another unique race - but is somehow liberal enough to allow for free men. But if the giants are as decadent as lazy as you make them out to be, the logic for the relative period and even location would swing for the opposite of liberal attitudes by doubling down on enlarging the slave/serf caste to produce more for the benefit of the giants, who get to sit around and pretend to be demigods or something maybe.

So, as said before: I need a rewrite.

EDIT - And because I'm thinking about it: how did they outwit the Empire, which a hundred, two-hundred years ago would have been a very functional and highly developed state, even if a colonial one essentially? The Gaulletics aren't, like: retarded. They'd have been pretty close to their peak. So it's hard for me to swallow someone that long ago invaded, had mystical tactics beyond anyone's comprehension for an Empire that has possibly incomprehensible size (for the purpose of the setting, since there's more "over there" somewhere beyond the scope of the RP), and then "winning" being buddies and getting free heavy artillery from the deal. So in the re-write: they're either just invading like The Eygszer are, or were there for a long ass time and were subjugated like everyone else or were friends to the Empire a long ass time ago.
