I have three different approaches, depending on the types of raiders faced.
1. Small group, less than us, and less armed. - Simply put, we hit them hard and fast, to where their losses quickly become not worth it, and they
flee (and of course, we'll be on high alert for the next couple of weeks).
2. Large group, not overwhelming odds, but enough to not make it worth the losses on our side. We'll try to broker a deal. (I have developed some
different protocols for this). They want food, water, etc. Fine, we'll supply some, on an ongoing basis, in exchange for not hassling us, and maybe
even trading excess spoils they come across. They don't have the know-how to keep producing food, water, etc., but that's where we'd come in. So, they
have a "safe place" they can resupply. Sure, may not feel too moral, but better than death or worse.
3. Large group, who doesn't want to deal. We bug out, following a pre-planned route (which has caches). Meanwhile, the enemy will eventually consume
the tainted part of the supply (probably even first, as it will be more obviously located), and many will (over the course of a few days) die off.
We'll soon return, and do hit and run raids to thin their numbers, then come back, clean up the bodies, and resume our lives.
