The Unstoppable Force is my tribute to characters such as Solid Snake, Zaraki Kenpachi, Rocky Balboa, and every character Kurt Russel has ever played. Many of the abilities were inspired by BWL's Art of War fighter fix.
The Unstoppable Force is exactly that. A warrior who fights and cannot be stopped, either by steel, or magic, or death itself. There are no secret masters, training students these ways. There are no abandoned temples filled with scrolls of lost lores. One can only become an Unstoppable Force by never giving in. By standing and fighting, and not running away. They must persist, even until their bodies have been broken.
Unstoppable Forces are typically lawful, as their training requires dedication and stubbornness, qualities that those lawful individuals are more likely to have. Nevertheless, there are examples of chaotic UF's. Neither good nor evil are more common, and infact it seems neutral is the most prevelant moral alignment among the unstoppable forces.
Most UF's tend to be Humans or Half-Orcs. There are some examples of Dwarf or Gnome UF's ,and out of all the races, Elves are the least likely to be a UF.
Toughness or Improved Toughness
Special: Must have defeated a foe or overcome an obstacle, very soon after recovering from, or still being at, near-death. (Commonly fulfilled as defeating an enemy while at -HPs using Diehard)

|Never Say Die|
Skin of Steel(Ex): At 1st level, and Unstoppable Force's whole body hardens and becomes tougher. The bones denser, the skin calloused and thicker. He receives a natural armor bonus to armor class equal to his constitution modifier.
Unstoppable Speed(Ex): At 2nd level, an Unstoppable Force may take a move action as an immediate action, once per encounter. She receives an additional use of this ability at fourth level.
Stubborn Mind(Ex): At 2nd level, an Unstoppable Force may overpower his own will. An Unstoppable Force may treat a failed will save as a successful one by taking 10 damage per point by which the save was missed. If the Unstoppable Force rolls a natural one, he must take an additional 10 damage (If the save was only failed because it was a natural one, he would only take 10 damage.)
Superior Endurance(Ex): At 3rd level the Unstoppable Force becomes immune to Fatigue effects, and any effect that would cause him to be exhausted instead causes him to become fatigued. The fatigue will stack to exhaustion as normal, if multiple effects that (normally) cause exhaustion overlap.
A Good Nights Rest(Ex): At 4th level an Unstoppable Force recovers from injury much, much quicker than a normal person. The Unstoppable Force adds his constitution modifier plus his class level to his character level when determining hit points recovered each night. The Unstoppable Force recovers from ability damage faster as well, recovering one point per constitution modifier per night. Finally, even his body will even recover from ability drain, regaining one lost ability point per night.
Never Say Die(Ex): At 5th level, the Unstoppable Force is truly that. [Death] attacks and other instant death effects do not cause death. Instead, they lower the Unstoppable force to -1 HP and render him unconscious.
In addition, the Unstoppable Force is no longer staggered from being reduced to -hp's, or having his non-lethal damage equal to his current hit points, and is staggered when his nonlethal damage exceeds his hit points, rather than knocked unconscious.
