The Life altar is a Runecrafting altar located through a portal in the Behind the Scenes bar.

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.

During the Gower Quest the player is required to repair the life altar using 3 life altar fragments. Once repaired, the player must fight the "reworked" Black Knight Titan.

After completion of the Gower Quest, Ian, Andrew, and Paul become the cabbagemancer caretakers of the life altar.

You can return to the Life altar at the end of the quest by retrieving the Disk of returning from the Crate of Returning at the Gower Farm, then activating it from a bank area. Once you arrive in Behind the Scenes, the life altar portal can easily be identified by the lush green grass south-east of the landing zone.
