Ye ol' Dunce Cap™ is now officially in place.

I'm hoping someone can answer a pair of questions I have about Jump Masking as detailed in GT: Far Trader.
  • P. 59: Jump Masking Diagram: The world's 100D limit is shown, the star's 100D limit is shown, and in this diagram, neither overlap. A light-grey cone is drawn from the world's 100D limit out past the star's 100D limit. Text in this cone says "Masked Jumps". I don't follow. The area encompassed by the light grey cone is outside of both the world's and the star's 100D limit, so how are jumps "masked" in an area that is not encompassed by a 100D limit? Or is that not what it means?
  • P. 60: Jump-Point Masking Table: Free: Under the definition of "Free", it says, Free is the chance that any point on the main world 100D limit will be unmasked by the jump limit of hte stellar primary . . . , ok I'm losing it right there. How does a star's 100D limit "unmask" a planet's 100D limit? If it can do it at all, why only in limited cases?</font>
More questions may follow . . .
