The Herobrine mod for the game "Minecraft" functions by adding in a special recipe that creates a new type of block along with the ability to summon the Herobrine character. This character acts under a computer-controlled system and interacts with a server world by creating chaos and destruction.
Herobrine is a fictional, fan-creation character within the "Minecraft" community who does not actually appear in any official release of the game. The lore around the character states that he spontaneously appears within a game world and creates random buildings and constructs, such as pyramids. The Herobrine mod allows players to include this character in a game through the use of special items and actions.
One of the key elements of the mod is the new recipe for creating the Herobrine Totem Block. This is done through a combination of eight pieces of Bone and one block of Soul Sand. Once the user creates enough Herobrine Totem Blocks, she is able to create the totem and summon the character. Once the character appears in the game, he begins to destroy all of his surroundings, including player creations and the natural environment. The only way to stop the Herobrine's path of destruction is to kill him.
