Perhaps you mean "plethora"?
Thing is, a caster forced to use a crossbow means they are now a third-rate archer.

It's for the same reason I stopped buying anything from White-Wolf after the new "edition". I resent spending craploads of money over the years on books just to find out that they're coming out with a new edition that isn't even remotely compatible with the books I already shelled out my money for. I fully believe that this is nothing but a marketing ploy by Hasbro to attempt to get even more money from us.
"Oh, your old books are worthless now... to play the NEW D&D, you have to buy a completely NEW set of books. Give us more and more and more of your money! Then in 5 years, we'll come out with yet another incompatible system and you'll have to give us even MORE money! We're so clever..."
A new edition that's still marginally compatible with the old edition is one thing... but this? I call BS and I guarantee Hasbro will not get a dime of my money.
