Ok, improved unarmed strike has always irritated me. woo, you can now deal 1d3 damage! what an utterly useless weapon to spend a feat on.

So here is a quick rewrite, to add some options and a bit of damage.

Improved Unarmed Strike:[General][Fighter]
Benefit:You are considered to be armed even when unarmed —that is, you do not provoke attacks or opportunity from armed opponents when you attack them while unarmed. However, you still get an attack of opportunity against any opponent who makes an unarmed attack on you. Your unarmed strikes can deal lethal or nonlethal damage, at your option.

Your unarmed strike also deals damage as if you were one size larger(monks use the normal progression for their size).

You can dual wield your unarmed strike, treating your main hand as a onehanded weapon and your offhand as a light weapon.

You can chose to count as using your unarmed strike with both hands. Used this way it deals damage as if your were a size larger.

Normal:Without this feat, you are considered unarmed when attacking with an unarmed strike, and you can deal only nonlethal damage with such an attack.

A monk automatically gains Improved Unarmed Strike as a bonus feat at 1st level.

A fighter may select Improved Unarmed Strike as one of his fighter bonus feats.
