As seen in GURPS Infinite Worlds a parachronic conveyer is a minivan sized vehicle that can hop between alterative universes.
When not using it to aquire cures for incurable diseases, etc. what petty use can you lot come up with for it?
Thanks! (in advance)

1: Ever wondered what the Venus De Milo looked like with arms? Of course, the trick is finding a reality which is close enough that she isn't holding a selfie stick.

Acquisitions:

2. A blu-ray complete set from the TL where the DCEU took off in the mid 2000s and the MCU is a flailing joke.
3. The Complete Silmarillion by J.R.R. Tolkien (published 1964, dedicated to his late friend C.S. Lewis)
4. A trunk full of gold coins minted in Venetian Cuba in the 17th century, just before it was conquered by Portugal.

Missions

5. Protecting the daughter of the Doge of Genoa from Pisan assassins until she weds the crown prince of Jerusalem. Also, ushering her to her rendezvous with the not-crown princess of Jerusalem.
6. Delivering the secret message of the British Resistance agent you accidentally - er - ran over to his OSS contact in Liverpool. Watch out for Gestapo agents and SS Werewolves.
7. Escorting a very bewildered (or is he?) George Lucas through a gauntlet of pro-prequel parachronic fans to Skywalker Ranch to produce Episode VII in 1991. Meesa yippee ki kay!

Or making an obscene (for our timeline) gesture. :D

I must admit, grabbing media that was unpublished for incomplete in our timeline was one of the first things I thought of.
...and why stop with just one version.

Surely you're not implying someone like Tolkien would have produced very different versions of his magnum opus across the multiverse?!

Universe shop until I find endings to books games and films I like better.

The same with foods.

Also tv schedules.

No, but Lucas might have! ;)
Also, all the possibilities where movies got directed/scriptwritten/acted by different people than in our timeline.

Yup, this.

Oh, another one.

Shop around for universes where media I hate got an abrupt end. The one where the Big Bang theory died 3 epps in, that strange sacred one where reality TV was no more than a blip before we said "But seriously" and things.
