Ogre spells have their own, rather length and confusing ruleset... basically they can be dispelled as if they were remains in play spells that have a 7+ cast value, but you cast them very very differently.

I'll get onto part 2 of my compendium at some point... but this week I'm a bit busy (and am putting off the last 1k words of a report I need to do).

They still count as Remains in Play spells. Page 3 of the OK FAQ makes it pretty clear, they are treated as Remains in Play spells cast with a power level of 7.
you mean this one?
FAQ said:
Q. An opponent may dispel a Gut Magic spell in his own magic
phase as though it was a Remains in Play spell cast with a Power
level of 7. Can an opponent use excess dispel dice to attempt to dispel
Gut Magic spells in play at the end of the Ogre Kingdoms player's
subsequent magic phases? If yes, are the Gut Magic spells treatd as
Remains in Play spells cast with a Power level of 7? (p60)
A. Yes to all questions.
If so (and there cant be anything else you mean) then I suggest you read it again- its talking about them being RiP for the purpose of dispel... if you still dont get it read the ogre magic section where it specifically says they are not RiP but are dispelled as RiP... and if you still dont get it then carry on reading the magic section where it says you can cast the same spell multiple times at multiple different targets (just not in the same turn): I can use 1 butcher to put the same spell onto every unit in my army if given enough time...

Once cast the only effective link between the spell and the butcher is that if the butcher dies the spell ends- I cant even decide to end the effects like I would for a RiP spell (so if I had toothcracker giving a unit stubborn but wanted to run away to escape a near certain destruction I couldnt end the spell to get a reduced Ld).

Yeah, its very weird that they've got rid of the fifth paragraph. Now we have no rules governing just what gut magic is meant to be- its certainly not RiP (although the FAQ tells us that they are dispelled as such) and ther eis no limit for buffs on a unit... all very weird.
