Scouter (5e Equipment)
From D&D Wiki
Scouters are wearable, all-purpose computers used by military forces across the galaxy, only coming into civilian use recently. They are custom-built to fit their wearer perfectly. They consist of a hard shell with a soft interior that fits around one of the wearer’s ears, though two-eared models exist, that contains a speaker and microphone, as well as a number of exterior buttons. A thick, transparent lens is attached to the shell, which comes in a vast variety of colors and acts as a visual display.
Up to 6 creatures wearing scouters can communicate through them at up to 100 miles away. As a bonus action, a creature wearing a scouter can use it to scan a creature they can see to learn one of the following at the DM’s discretion:
- CR or level
- Remaining hit points
- Remaining ki or spell-slots
- 1 ability score that is not Intelligence, Wisdom, or Charisma
If the DM determines the information gained would be extraordinary, they may instead make the scouter explode.
