The Welcome Area is where players spawn when they sign in to SHO for the first time. It is a floating platform with several signs greeting the player and listing the server rules. It is also decorated with pixel art submitted by Vechs' patrons. The Welcome Area has a warp to a mini dungeon simply referred to as "???" which leads the player to the true start of the map, Valgarde City. Once the player warps to Valgarde, they can never access the Welcome Area again.
