The Altar Machine is a Creatures Online machine. It will allow the player to drag and drop a norn onto the pad, where it will shiver. A confirmation screen will appear. If the player selects 'yes', then a short animation will be played, and the norn "will disappear forever in an ethereal light", and the norn will wave a last goodbye. After the norn vanishes, some genes will be dropped which can be used in the Splicing Machine.
