I worked quite a bit to get to the point where I can buy the rising star cpastone boon without using adventure path chronicles. Now that I got there I realized that I'm not entirely sure how to interpret the second paragraph:
In addition to the benefits of this boon, once you purchase
this capstone boon, you are encouraged to send an e-mail to
email@example.com with a subject line of “Second
Seekers Rising Star.” Include your character’s race, class, name,
character number, and a description of 75 words or less in the
body of the e-mail. That character is entered into a drawing
to become a future in-world Venture-Captain, member of the
Forum, or even the First Seeker.
What character exactly am I supposed to provide information for and enter the raffle? The character that worked to get the reputation (I assume this one is correct), the 0 XP charactert that gets the benefits of ther boon or is it completely free and any one of my characters without any requirements can enter the drawing?
It's the character with the 45 reputation I assume but I want to make sure to do it correctly.

I think so too, that the line was mostly intended for spells with objects as targets.
Regarding the summoner we also have the issue that the summoning ritual of the Eidolon is neither a normal summoning spell, nor a calling spell. It's something in between that does not have clear rules on all matters and more faqs would certainly be helpful.
Just to make things less complicated I usually let players do what they want with their Eidolon items. Exceptions only come in if the game context calls for it.

Thanks for the quick reply. I'll correct the chronicles with my players next time I meet them.
I can't seem to find more information regarding the credit reward of #1-01 so I'll state my question here. 509 credits is written on the sheet and that seems to be really low compared to the normal 720ish on Starfinder. Even with selling the Strawberry Machine Cake album you only end up with 659 credits.
From a rules perspective, even if a Bloodrager could take the Sorcerer bloodline, he would not count his Bloodrager levels as Sorcerer levels for that purpose, so there would be no benefit.
If access to that specific boodline is that important to you, you can always get there with eldritch heritage.
From a GM perspective I can say, using the Ghould bloodline on a Bloodrager designed specifically for its use, it would be very powerful and almost game breaking in certain situations (which usually isn't fun, not even for the players).
If you find any weird ways to make this actually work, you should look into Primalist Bloodrager archetype, because it can give you Rage Powers, that allow access to various natural attacks.
Most of the changes and updates are totally fine in my book. Especially the Ioun Stones which simply did too much for the pricetag.
Lore Warden changes I don't get. It clearly is a Nerf, especiall on low levels. None of its abilities and/or feats ever really cause issues. If a Lore Warden becomes game-breaking it's because of abilities of other classes or feats which might need the nerf, not the Lore Warden.
Same with Tribal Scars. Might have been too powerful on low levels but it got nuclear nerfed now and pretty much noone will want to use it anymore.
I`d agree with banning the ring. It`s underpriced for scouting in general and is WAY too underpriced if a character really takes advantage of it.
I don't actually think the ring is the biggest issue here but rather some compounding issues with dexterity builds AND transmutation effects with unarmed/natural attack builds.
The reason banning the ring might still be good is to discourage people from doing that weird stuff by taking one of the signature items for those builds away and making them weaker that way (at least until they have the gold to get alternatives).
For the people who are reading this and just bought that bundle.....
Soooo... IF fighting defensively can only be used when taking the <attack action> and the <full-round attack action>, why isn't it stated clearly in the rules.
