I recently got the new chaos army book and have been reading through it quite excitedly. I however have a question about the Nurgle spell "Curse of the Leper". I don't want to copy the spell into this post for copyright reasons, but could someone else with the book give me their opinion?
Because it is a remains in play spell, do the effects completely go away when the spell is over? Or do they simply cease to get worse each turn? Going strictly by the rules, it appears that the spell would cease completely, but from a fluff standpoint it makes absolutely no sense for a unit who's limbs have been falling off to magically regain them somehow.
[...] So I burst into his office and exclaimed, quite frankly, "That's Numberwang." As I recall it, he cried.
Though the description indicates that limbs start to fall off, There are no lasting effects if this spell ends.
Since it is toughness based, imagine that due to the constitution of the unit, the decay was unable to destroy their body maybe?
A remains in play spell only works for its duration. If it persisted beyond that, its rules would make clear that would happen.

It's often best to completely ignore the fluff of a spell or magic weapon when figuring out how it works, because it can often confuse you as the rules might not work in the same way as the fluff suggests they should.
As Rork said, when a Remains in Play spell finishes, all its effects end unless it explicitly states that they continue.
Thou shalt remember:
Warhammer Fantasy armies do NOT have Codices. They have Army Books.
