What is the name of the large island in the D&D world of Nerath? I guess it could be a continent also.

It would seem based on this article (and a few things in dragon which I can't read) The entire land seems to be missing a name, with the lands just having the names of the empires that conquered it. If names were given to the general territory, its beyond my reach :) – GMNoob Aug 21 '11 at 9:20
I would put a bounty on this just for the heck of it, but I get the feeling that the answer at this point may well be "It hasn't been named yet", and that wouldn't be much fun. Perhaps we'll know after a few more product releases. – Jakob Aug 23 '11 at 13:50

The island is called Kelarnil based on the following excerpt from The Seven Kings of Karkoth

Karkothi legions menace the fair realms of Vailin, the valiant Seldurian tribes that remain loyal to the old ideal of Nerath, and the great island of Kelarnil from their foothold in the Dread Marches.

Dread Marches is the north east territory on the main island which indeed belongs to Karkoth.

impressive! Did you find that for this question, or had you read the document before? – GMNoob Aug 26 '11 at 7:28
@GMNoob found it for this question. It's only mention in this one place, as far as I could find (look at the history of edits on the answer). – Eugene Katz Aug 29 '11 at 13:48
Definitely impressive, don't know why I didn't think of searching for the sub names of the parts of the island. Then again, I don't have access to those articles. – GMNoob Aug 29 '11 at 16:08
