It started out as an inspection for bio-weapons on a recently found old orbiting station near the system Druckenwell in CIS territory. Under the invite of Darth Tacitus to all of interested CIS allies to explore and go on a treasure hunt of said station, which incidentally dated back to the old Eternal Empire under the rule of Valkorion; Karlie happened up the cache of tens of thousands of battle droids stored in the weapons hold of the station.
Old as they may be, she discovered that on the whole, most of these droids still held about 17% of their stored power cells.
making this short; Karlie returned to the station and transported her find and claim off the station. The invite to the station had been as a treasure hunt for the CIS and this is what she found.
With a little elbow grease to spit shine them up (not by yours truly mind you, but by my system's maintenance personnel) and new powers cells...was able to acquire a fodder load of these toys for the CIS...mainly for me at a fraction of the cost of say a thousand new model battle droids.
Sure the're old. But they function and will be quite handy in keeping my foes busy as our main forces work on outflanking them.
Shoot...did I just post one of my battle tactics?...disregard the last sentence.
The RP is Echoes of Eternity-Bones of Zakul and the find and play is on post #28, 30 and 40.
Ooh...almost forgot. You know what's neat about Bobby...er BOB-1 rather?
Every time I give them a command, they respond back with, 'By your Command' ..Now how awesome is that!?
