Location of 61 Cygni & LV-038 (DoW background)

Sun 03 Oct 2021, 22:49

Hey y'all,

I give up. I have read and read and read, scoured and scoured and scoured the various Middle Heavens maps, and I do not get it... Where is 61 Cygni located on the map? The UPP just annexed the system, and it is presumably very close to Kruger 60, but I cannot find the place anywhere. I am an idiot and I need help; I would very much appreciate if someone could spoon-feed me this location by posting a picture with the star system circled, or something. I fail... sorry.

<3

PS: I'm sure it's right there, but I cannot see it.

Thank you, sir! Which source is this from? I must have stared at this a dozen times and not seen it....

Yup, there it is... (ChariotOfThe)GodsDamnItAllToHeck...
(Do anyone know of a good high-res image version of this map?)

And, while we're at it... Origae-6/"Planet 4"? Huh?

The PDF of the Map Marker Pack scales up well - which I prefer that to putting wear and tear on the physical copy.

Bottom center of the map next to "Trailward" arrow for Sector 87 / Origae-6.

Again, thank you, sir! Again, there it is, right there :o It appears that I'm very bad at this map-gazing... :roll:

Ok, I'm gonna ask again since I'm apparently blind. (Not, I don't have my core or CMCM books with me; apologies if this is clearly described somewhere in those books).

I'm reading Destroyer of Worlds, where one of the characters has a "Yaophora Station" mentioned in their background. Is there any indication anywhere in the Alien RPG material as to where that place might be? I gather it is not particularly important to the adventure, but my players are going to ask, so... Any thought? :)

Thanks in advance!

ALIEN Colonial Marines Operation Manual says that Yaophora was destroyed after the outbreak to contain it. - page 24 in the timeline block for 2183-2184.
Mason is mentioned as the only survivor.
