Cohen the Barbarian and his Silver Horde are going to Dunmanifestin to “take the fire back to the gods”, as a vengeance for the latter letting the heroes getting old instead of getting killed heroically in battle. When they learn about that, the Patrician and the Wizards of Ankh-Morpork send a team to prevent this from happening, since the very powerful explosive the heroes are carrying would destroy the gods and thereby destroy all magic on the Disc, with catastrophical consequences. The team is composed of Carrot, Rincewind and Leonard of Quirm, who built the dragon-powered vehicle that is thrown off the edge of the Disc, travels below it between the Elephant's legs, and is supposed to circle back above the Disc and land on the top of Cori Celesti. Because of the unexpected presence aboard of the Librarian, they are forced to land on the Moon to refill their air tanks and find fuel for the dragons. They eventually arrive and manage to convince Cohen that if they destroy the gods, and therefore the Disc, nobody would remember the dead Heroes (which is what being a Hero is all about). The Horde leaves running with the soon-to-detonate explosive and die heroically. Or maybe actually not?
