I may be looking too much into this, but I'm having issues interpreting Removes Curse's effect on Bestow Curse. Bestow Curse reads:
You touch a creature, and that creature must succeed on a Wisdom saving throw or become cursed for the duration of the spell. When you cast this spell, choose the nature of the curse from the following options. [...]
A Remove Curse spell ends this effect. At the DM's option, you may choose an alternative curse effect, but it should be no more powerful than those described above. The DM has final say on such a curse's effect. [...]
So here's what I need help understanding:
Does Remove Curse dispel the spell as a whole, and if the caster wants to re-curse they must touch the target again? Or does it remove the specific curse the caster specified and they select a new effect to curse the target with without recasting? The mentioning of Remove Curse next to alternative curse effects is what's tripping me up. Plus, when it says "ends this effect" does it mean the spell or the specified curse?
Thanks in advance.
