For sure there are a lot of ways to get it done faster/cheaper.
1. I want it out of stone that can't crumble (even good brick or concrete block breaks down) in the long run
2. I want large stones so it can't really be dozed ever.
Its going to be the way I want to be eternalized. I know it's silly in a way but that's the I only thing that gives me purpose in this short life

For those interested why star forts were invented in the first place: after the introduction of gunpowder, there was a shift in defensive thinking. From then on solid stone walls were less effective, so they created earthen walls with triangular shapes and used cannons as main line of defense.

Greece is full of castles but only a handfull are in pristine condition, search for Rhode castle, methoni castle, Palamidi, Monemvasia, A nice example of fortifications are the old walls of Nicosia in cyprus as well.

Yep, it was almost certainly terrible. Because all of the 960 defenders of the fortress committed suicide. Well, technically they took turns killing each other, supposedly obly one guy committed suicide which is against Judaism. I thought murder was too, but that is the story, I just go with it.

The only thing worse might have been Tyre. Alexander the Great built a goddamn bridge to the foot of the fortress and then laid siege to it with two giant siege towers. During the initial battles the defenders of Tyre captured some Macedonian troops and executed them on the walls so the Macedonian army could see. Once Alexander got into the walls his army committed wholesale slaughter. Only the people who took refuge in a holy temple were spared. But 2000 people were crucified on the beach. Alexander didn't fucking play, and the people of Tyre saw the "demon king" coming for quite a long time.
