Default [Infinite Worlds] Trans-temporal debris

I'm just collecting people and things for my own campaign. Strange people and objects unhinged in one or another timeline direction. Yes, Qoltar, your NPC inspired me to start.

Random outworlders, entering through glowing portals. Some call it an EPR vortex bridge, some call it the paratronic penetrator, but it's always an artificial hole in space-time.

Stranded time machines that accidentally switched timelines. It's always a bad idea to have a lunch break in Nagasaki on August 9th, 1945, even with chronoton shielding.

A TARDIS and its inhabitants. Can also be a TOILET if you're drifting into silly land.

Some very strange creatures from the outer reaches of imagination. Can be almost anything.

A flying car that incorporates a magical toilet. Don't ask, read Heinlein.

My mind isn't that well at the moment. Do you have more suggestions?

Schroedinger's dog.

The sixth Beatle. The seventh, for that matter.

J.R. Ewing's gravestone.

A photograph of the coronation of George I, King of America and Canada.

Bob.

A kid or a crazy, wild-eyed old man who claims to be a scientist.

Toonses.

That's just a few for now.

The original Gift of Eris. Quite likely to be a reality shard.

A simple gold band that when worn turns the wearer invisible and has weird writing on it when heated.

Various timestream agents, from the standard GURPS agents to people like other paratronic investigators from even stranger versions of reality and, of course, the Starfleet Time Police from Star Trek, protecting their timeline from insurgents.

Of course, the infamous Doc Brown with his Flying Steam Engine.

Quinn Mallory and the other Sliders.

Samuel Beckett leaping in extra confused.

A talking and insulting dog named Mr. Peabody.

A rusted out bullet ridden Delorean.

A hysterical convenience store Clerk that keeps repeating how he's not supposed to even be here. Along with Jay and Silent Bob.

Ridiculously large feathers just lying on the rocs.

A severely crushed robotic arm stretched out as if reaching for something.

Not to mention the occasional stray phone booth containing historical celebrities... and Bill and Ted...

A skeleton apparently made of some impossibly hard metal; nearly human except for 3 sharp bladelike "bones" protruding from both wrist areas.

A modern-looking vehicular shell built onto and around a broomstick; inside the glove compartment is a device which acts like a camera flash. Analysis of the flash's light shows it to be polarized.

A '64 Chevy Malibu with the trunk lid broken open and empty - the trunk insides look burnt & somewhat melted. Crumpled, empty white cans labeled simply 'BEER' litter the interior, and a pine-scented car deodorizer shaped like an evergreen tree hangs from the rear-view mirror.

A large book, titled The Handbook for the Recently Deceased. It reportedly reads like a stereo manual.

A strange tank (MBT). The passengers are a mutant kangaroo and a girl who is nearly bald. Both drunk stiff, and the girl keeps muttering about "washing her hair". The tank should just fall out of the sky.
