Magic practitioners on the Discworld are rather different from what you'll find in most series. While witches and wizards exist, they spend most of their time not using magic. The Unseen University seems to exist for the sole purpose of keeping the wizards so busy subverting each other that they don't have a chance to go out and get into mischief. And the witches have spent generations amongst the common folk, doing acts that are far from spectacular, infinitely more beneficial, and practically devoid of magic. Because to use magic is to stand out as different and scary. And while some different is good and useful, some different will get you burned at the stake. There are those that love a good witch burning. And one of them has set his sights on Tiffany Aching, young witch of the The Chalk, and he won't let anything stop him. Time, space, and even death are mere obstacles to overcome until every witch is dead. From official release/information:
