The note is attached by what appears to be tape.

If this was really from Pandora, it would have been a Post It note because whether or not the note will stick is one of the most random events in this reality.

Well, Pandora knows that Post-It notes really work by not-very-reliable magic and do not work well with other spells. Of course she would use tape, probably duct tape.

I'm rooting for Pandora to appear in person. "Appear" as in make herself visible to Catalina and Rhoda, because, of course, she's already there.

Sigh.  I realize I'm not the most patient person, but really?  An entire comic devoted to "we're nervous about reading the note?" On Wednesday are we going to have a debate about the risks associated with reading the note, and then on Friday a brave decision to read the note, with the last panel on Friday being the two of them saying "oh my!" as they read the note but don't tell us what it says?

Or what?

:)

Hey, is that some sort of demonic duct tape?

Nothing is sacred anymore. No Internet.

Trust me, that note is not Goonmanji/Jumanji.

That would make having a seemingly random book appear before them pointless if she has to then appear to explain what it's for, I'm certain that's what the note is supposed to accomplish.

And it's GOOD comic.

BTW, personally I categorized EGS as mix of SciFi and modernized fantasy.

Exactly. Also, Sarah was special, Pandora was not giving knowledge like to her for many twenties.

Scores of what? Centuries, decades, lustrums, olympiads, years, seasons, months, fortnights, weeks, days, hours, minutes, seconds? Naps? Pranks?

I said I was hoping, not counting on. And it wouldn't make what Pandora will say to Sarah an out-and-out lie if Pandora now says something like "READ MY NOTE ALREADY!!!" in the floating-little-girl form that Rhoda's seen before. And it's totally in the trope of a good scary Halloween trick.

How long a span of time is a "lustrum", anyway?

Apparently, five years.

... what exactly they mean by "purification"?

Very good question.

Actually, that would be good reason for Rhoda to NOT read that note. Almost as good as if she would introduce herself as Pandora Chaos Raven.

From the Roman point of view, it was the ceremonial animal sacrifice that followed the quinquennial census.  Apparently, if you want all the people of the Roman Kingdom/Republic/Empire to atone for their sins, you need to know how many people actually are in the Kingdom/Republic/Empire.
