        Why would the Dara Happans have a myth about Giantland?

        That is a serious stretch. By that logic, Dragons and mystics would be associated with the Disorder rune.

        Personally, I find it hard to imagine anything LESS disorderly (or defiant of nature, for that matter) than sitting down immobile for centuries, and becoming part of the geography.

	Though constructing elaborate clockworks that perfectly demonstrate the predictable and orderly nature of the world is also a very very not-Disorderly activity, and the Elder Giants apparently to that too.
