Is there any way to create magic weapons, magic armor, or magic shields without using spells? I'm not asking for wondrous items or anything, just, like, a +2 flaming sword or a +3 ghost touch breastplate?
I know that traditionally dwarves create really nice magic weapons, armor, and shields, and everything seems to imply that they rarely use actual magic spells to create them. The game implies that they're supernaturally skilled or use some kind of ritual (that doesn't require possessing caster levels) to make the items, but I can't find whatever it is the dwarves use.
I just want my warblade PC to be able to create his own magic weapons that have both magic enhancement bonuses and magic weapon special abilities. I want to role-play him making his own weapons, not trusting anyone else to do it right.
