Trap Trap Trap

" In Mexico, the Red Queen of Palenque was a ruler of the sanguine Maya around 650 AD. The altars in two vast pyramidal temples were protected by false floors and death pits, but these were just teasers - for inside the leader’s sarcophagi her bones - and all of the pearl and jade treasures - had been painted red with cinnabar, a deadly neurotoxin."

The real world (of the time) was deadlier than any fantasy. Except for maybe, Tomb of Horrors, maybe.
