you'll wake up immediately in a conversation with someone to ask for permission. It's more a "waking someone up" than sleeping in someone's house without them knowing.

If I build a road to the edge of the map, would traders and migrants show up at that spot instead of somewhere else? I'd like to have them appear on my non-evil plains instead of the evil desert....

No. I suppose there are similarities, but I'm fairly certain angry birds doesn't let me charge into a battalion of knights with a car made of circular saws.

How does this new justice system work?

View the justice screen as usual, and you can scroll down through the various current crimes (and anyone who's been punished or is in line for punishment). Press enter while you're viewing a case that someone hasn't been punished for, yet, and you can select someone to punish. I think shelling "justice" out for people who don't deserve it might tick off your dwarves, though.

If you're lucky, the crime will have had a few eyewitnesses, which are noted in the crime's info, and anyone accused will be at the top of list of people you can choose to punish. Just be careful because sometimes the criminal himself will accuse someone. "Someone" in this case can even be an animal for now (giving you a good idea of who really did it), but that's supposed to be fixed in the next release.

I don't know how mandates not being met works, I'm assuming nobles will still choose someone to punish themselves rather than letting you do it, but I'm not sure. Other than that... hammerers are back in, and can be assigned from the start. I haven't had much luck getting them to actually give hammerstrikes though, my captain of the guard still usually seems to smack the criminal around. (I ended up un-designating my cages used as prisons, since that basically just seemed to make vampires I locked in them go out and drain more dwarves dry as soon as they got out, anyhow.)

IF the current version is similar to previous versions, and I don't see any reason to suppose that it isn't, then building a road doesn't directly affect where traders and migrants show up.  They will show up anywhere that they can path to your fortress*.  If, by building a road, you give them a path when they otherwise wouldn't have one, they'll show up there-- otherwise, they won't.

*Actual decisions of where they show up are determined up to a year in advance of actually showing up.  If you've changed the map layout during that time, they can show up someplace without path.

Nope, migrants and liaisons are stupid. What you can do is do a bunch of digging to get them funnelled into subterranean corridors ASAP, though you'll need traps or something there to stop stuff from wandering in and forming an unwelcome welcome party. With a reanimating biome the corridor gets even more fun, and you might need to set up a minifortress there with guards and haulers. Barracks are a pretty good way of guarding one place, since you can leave the whole squad there 24/7 and they'll train when nothing's attacking. Make sure you have waterskins if you do this; they remove 2 out of 3 visits to the booze stockpile and reduced the third to a walk there and back. Waterskin-filling is instant, drinking from the barrel isn't.

Wagons will only spawn on tiles that have a path to your fortress and had a path to the wagon on embark (the embark path is not affected by trees). You can block off the whole edge except the part you want them to spawn at. You can't build walls right up to the edge, but you can use existing trees, build a raising bridge, or dig a ha-ha. The rest of the caravan will use the wagon's spawn point.

I am trying to make chickens lay bees as eggs. So far it only produces a single "Tame Small Creature" when a hen lays bees.
Honestly at the time, I didn't see what could go wrong with crowding 80 military Dwarves into a small room with a necromancer for the purpose of making bacon.

Whats the best animal to breed and farm to get the most product from it?
Meat to eat
Fat to make soap
Wool to shear and make yarn
bones to make bone bolts
Fast breeding and fast growing.
What other qualities would be good to have.
I brought a male bull and female cow, but they are expensive and they don't have very many offpsring. And they require a huge pasture.  I just don't have any data for how many dwarves a single butchered fully grown cow will feed vs how many an alpaca will feed.
Alpacas, seem to look good and make a lot of babies, but how much meat and fat do they produce? They also seem to get into fights and unjure themselves.
I brought 2 dogs to breed and now I have dozens of puppies. Its going to be a dogsplosion soon. I have dogs on top of my perimeter walls.. How? Theres no ramps or stairs that lead up there.

Has it been determined whether or not a crutch has an effect on the healing process itself, and not just the method of allowing a dwarf with a leg injury to move?
