BEEP! BEEP! BEEP! BEEP! BEEP! BEEP!
Cost: 1 minor charge
Effect: The targetís alarm clock goes off. If the target has more than one alarm clock, the one used most often or the one closest to the target goes off. This covers bell alarms, digital alarm clocks, mobile telephone alarms, stereo system alarms, whatever. The alarm just goes off, once. Thatís the entire effect. It can be more useful than it sounds, particularly for harassment, or for sending a signal, or whatever purpose the players can come up with. Centuries ago, this spell was used to make roosters crow, but that effect stopped working in the 17th century. It wasnít until the 1950ís that someone discovered that the formula still works. Itís relatively common and the ritual can even be found in some libraries, in books of quaint occult practices. Itís very low down on the Sleepers list of priorities at the moment.
Ritual: A circle no less than 50 centimetres in diameter is drawn into the ground with a bronze object. Within the circle must be sprinkled a mixture of chickenís blood, the mucus from ones eye upon waking, and vodka. The words ďFascinare tumultus cubiculumĒ must then be chanted 33 times while the full name of the target is written in the ground next to the Circle. This is then followed by sixty seconds of silence, whereupon ďFascinareĒ is intoned. At this point, the alarm clock goes off.

You're going to lose this post, because you didn't specify that it should go in the Rituals section.

... the 50's. Sounds like this one came back in the days of air raid sirens causing people to "duck and cover" to be safe from a nuclear blast.
