At the end of Interesting Times, Rincewing became stranded somewhere in XXXX, the Last Continent, but nobody cared. Now that the Librarian is sick, the Faculty of Unseen University desperately needs someone to help him and to replace him as the librarian. They quickly think of Rincewind. While looking for a professor of Geography, they arrived (through the bathroom window of this professor's rooms, which opens to another place and time) on a small island where a lonely god experiments with evolution, several thousands years before the present time. Meanwhile, Rincewind is being told by a strange kangaroo that he must help making rain on XXXX, where it hasn't for the past thousands of years, because of the UU wizards. Rincewind travels through the continent, trying to escape his forced quest, while events always push him back on track. While escaping the Watch (he was meant to be hangged for sheep theft), he arrives in large city where he meets the wizards of the local university of magic. Meanwhile, in the past, the other wizards sail from the island to the Last Continent, which is just being made by gods. With their help, he retrieves (from a cave below a local brewery) an artifact that the god from the past should have used for making the rain, but that was stolen by one of the wizards before the god turned them into stone for getting finally some peace. Rincewind also retrieves his fellow wizards from the same cave before it collapses (because it was never meant to exist). Finally, they all sail home to Ankh-Morpork.
