One quick thought occurs to me as I flip through the 4e Dungeon Master’s Guide. 4th Edition D&D did introduce the concept of skill challenges which were basically skill-based resolution involving the whole party. Useful for negotiation, searching, studying, etc. I never quite got comfortable with skill challenges in our brief 4e game. I’ll have to spend some time re-examining them to see if they seem appropriate for my goals.
