|Main music||Life Altaring|
|Teleportation||Life altar portal (Gower Quest)|
The life altar is the source of life runes. Unlike the rest of the Runecrafting altars in Gielinor, it does not require rune essence or pure essence in order to function. The life altar continuously creates life runes without any input, which must be turned into cabbages by a cabbagemancer. These cabbages are then sent to Gielinor's cabbage farms, where it appears as if they've grown there.
If a cabbagemancer is not actively tending the life altar, there is a danger that it will overload and explode, ending both the flow of cabbages to Gielinor and the supply of respawn-enabling life runes to the inhabitants of Behind the Scenes.
