Jades' First Encounters Site

Welcome to Jades' First Encounters Site, by Graham 'Jades' Thurlwell! This site aims to give you almost all of the FFE info you will probably ever need, such as hints on the missions, ship and equipment reviews, a nice guide to interesting (or otherwise) systems and plenty of general background of the game.

This page is for you, the FFE players, and depends on your support, so if you have any comments, by all means E-mail me. I welcome praise, (constructive) criticism or just about anything you fancy mailing me about since it helps to remind me that there are people reading the pages ;-) If the info you want isn't on this site, then give me a quick mail and I can tell you if I know the answer (but haven't uploaded that version of the site yet...) or genuinely don't know (but might know someone who does). Also, if you have any info on the game to tell me then let me know!

As always, you can look at the page What's new? for details of the things I've done recently.

Don't miss the Special Anniversary Feature! Musings on 20 Years of Running an FFE Site.
