Alignment: Probably nominative-accusative. I haven't studied morphosynthetic alignment enough to say. :,D
Primary Word Order: Extremely strict VSO. You can't really change the order and still have the sentences make sense.
Language Type: Agglutinative bordering on crazy polysynthetic, but strangely enough it can sometimes function as its direct opposite, an isolating language. It's mostly tenses that are completely detatched from the main word.
Declined?: Eh, I'll explain that in the fourth portion, I could write an essay on the nuances.
Amount of Phonemes: A mere 21.
Basic Syllable Structure: (C)(C)(J,L)V(C)(C)

The Language Construction Kit is the fledgling conlanger's Bible. It's also good refresher if you feel you've hit a road block.
If you've got a reasonably established lang but want to build lexicon, check out this Translation Exercises page. It provides links to several conlang-muscle flexing exercises.
Try out a a conlang phrasebook. (Download links are the in the 5th paragraph, down.)
Or fill out a Swadesh list.
Here's a syllable generator. It does a good job if you're feeling lazy or you aren't interested in creating etymology within your lexicon.
This random word generator is alright, but you have to have words to seed with.
memories, making glorious mudhis memories are making a glorious mudmemories, making glorious mud7 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
it is a lumberjack's wife whose veins are budding twigs,
arms feeble as every dried branch to soak a shining star.
it is her who bares such troubled wrists for oven mitts,
so ardently delivers her hoggish assembly some hulking bird
whose body cavity is crammed tight to the sphincter
with a spiced bread. instinctively, she goes for the knife.
there is some raucous applause as she serrates
its oiled, peppered and flightless skin and on
into its succulent chest meat as every spectator
dreams of flying. her blade burrows farther in
and under enough to dredge up a pinkish marrow,
where she stops, lets the carver out
to start again from the beginning...
no lumberjack lives here,
no whiskered axe-man wakes to the rooster.
a daring cedar deadened him flat as toads who nap
beneath some winter stones. his brain was stapled to earth
with a mighty red branch and there have spread rumors.
the truth? his memories are making a glorious mud.
