Omnitrix (5e Equipment)
From D&D Wiki
Wondrous Item, artifact (Requires attunement)
The Omnitrix resembles a wrist watch. Its face plate is now square instead of round, and has a white and green color scheme. The faceplate is black with two green stripes forming an outline for the hourglass of the intergalactic peace symbol. When the faceplate is slid back, the Omnitrix’s core is revealed. The Omnitrix's level is determined by how many aliens you have that have reached level 3. (Warning, this item is very powerful and shouldnt be used in traditional campaigns)
using the omnitrix to change into an alien costs 1 bonus action. the amount of rounds the transformation lasts is determined by your class level + con mod rounds.
(or you could roll 2d6 instead, your call)
You can use this item (Con mod + your class level) times, and you cant use the same alien more than twice (2 of the same alien per day) Omnitrix Cooldown at levels:
0 - 5 mins
3 - 2 mins
7 - 1 min
10 - none
Master control: having unlocked master control, you no longer need to use your bonus action to change form also all limiters have been removed, so theres neither a cooldown nor a limit on your form changes. all you need to do is think of an alien you want to change into, and your omnitrix will make it so.
these are the modes the omnitrix can take, depending on the situation/activation
Active: the omnitrix' lights glow a faint green, signaling its ready for use.
Recharge/Timeout: the omnitrix no longer glows, and its green coloration changes to a red. while in this state, the omnitrix cannot be used. the dial can still be turned, however.
Scan/Capture: the omnitrix' coloration changes to that of yellow, and a beam of yellow energy, shaped like a V, scans nearby DNA samples currently not stored in the omnitrix (use with caution, this can be game breaking depending on the monster scanned)
Self Destruct: the omnitrix' coloration changes to orange to signify the self destruct sequence has been activated. if the time is allowed to run out, the omnitrix will blow up. its not large enough to damage anything nearby, its a small contained destruction only meant for the device itself.
Recalibration: the omnitrix' dial changes to blue, meaning its recalibrating itself for its new user/upating itself to access new aliens.

=== Final Notes === (Things you might wanna know) As the omnitrix is only a piece of technology, is it succeptable to energy attacks and EMPs. sometimes these can cause the omnitrix to malfunction, such as unwanted transformations.
other known types of omnitrix' include: Omnimatrix (the omnitrix' full name, and the first prototype model)
Ultimatrix (Allows for an evolutionary function)
Biomnitrix (Allows for the fusion of DNA, uses two omnitrix' on both wrists/forearms)
it is also possible to switch from alien form to alien form without needing to switch back, however this isnt reliable and is unhealthy for the omnitrix.
The omnitrix has a randomizer function, and it works in two different ways;
either it randomly switches transformations before timing out, or it changes into one alien for a neglectable ammount of time, say like 10 seconds or so. this function is by default turned off, for obvious reasons.
the omnitrix has a life-form lock function; with it you can stay transformed for an extended period of time. not recommended to be used often.
Now lets dive into the meat of how this works, the Transformations. lets set a few ground rules first, we don't want to make someone TOO strong, ...right? anyway, Rule One- and this one is make or break; While in a Transformation, you cannot use the traditional features associated with your Class. Magic, however, is allowed.
Rule Two- if you are knocked unconscious or die while Transformed, you will revert back to your base form.
and finally, Rule Three- all aliens have a leveling system. the more you use them the more they grow. this isnt exactly a rule, more like a mini-guideline. your aliens gain EXP when you use them. the amount of exp earned is equal to the uses, for example; Upgrade is currently level zero, but the first time you use him he becomes level one. in order to bring him to level two, you need to use him two more times after that. four uses after level two will bring the alien up to its max level, level three. in total you need to use an alien six times for them to reach level three. the reason its designed this way is mostly to be faithful to the source material, but also to balance out the transformations. One last note, transformations can change your stats. for example, Fourarms gives your strength stat a hearty +5, and some others change your movement speed. Keep this in mind when selecting your Aliens!
sorry for the ramble, now onto the transformations themselves!
