Requests for Deep Magic

Ok, now I seriously *AM* going to run out stretch goals before the end of the project. It's a good problem to have, but I ask you Open Design veterans:

Who would you want to come on as a guest designer to do spells or closely related material, and what would you want them to write?

The floor is open.

Ken Hite.
Chad Underkoffler.
Lois Bujold! While not a designer, her magic systems in the Chalion and Sharing Knife series are elegant and woundrous.

All good ideas, or at least Ken and Lois.

I keep hearing Chad's name, but not necessarily for Pathfinder. I'll have to dig into it.

Thanks for the suggestions!

Lois admits to being a slower writer, so I don't know if she'd be interested in something with this quick a turnaround. But her designs for fiction are topnotch. I've done a little fiddling with Chalion and Sharing Knife from a mechanics standpoint, and I think they're gameable. They're examples; I certainly am not suggesting any licensing discussions at this stage!

Chad was a regular contributor to Pyramid Magazine, Vol. 2, when it was an online subscription. He's involved in Fate and his own company right now, so I don't know how much he'd be interested in d20.
