A Life Forge is a vessel for storing life energy to be used in Creation. Used to make lifeforms, they ease the task for those without centuries of experience.

Life Forges are made of Glassteel; a magically made glass that is hard as high quality iron. Dimensions are typically 10' in diameter and 2' tall. There are much bigger ones. The one in the Palace of Nine is 100' in diameter. It is a dead forge, like others decorating the halls of empires and the lairs of dragons.

Anyone who finds a Life Forge today would be lucky to keep it for more than a few weeks. Higher Powers see these devices of creation as relics mortals should not possess. They also don't want them to fall into the wrong hands. In the past, some have gotten their hands on them and used them for personal reasons. In the Dawn Era, Zhusalax illegally used a life forge to create the Shou race. Another illegal use of one occurred when when Kurtulmak borrowed his master's life forge used it to create a kobold army for the sole purpose of overthrowing her.
