Currently a GM for D&D 5e. I have also run a 4e D&D campaign and a few 1 shots of All Flesh Must be Eaten. I play in games of D&D 5e, 7th Sea, Legend of the 5 Rings, and Scion. I have perused the rule book for DC's superhero RPG as well as a few others.

I am also an amateur hobbyist who makes D&D tiles in the modular 2.5D style (invented my DM Scotty of TheDMsCraft and perfected by DM Gareth of TheDMGinfo, who are both on youtube). Along with the tiles I make models of set pieces to enhance the miniature play, things like tables and chairs to scale and other set decorations can go along way to helping players think outside the box, in my opinion, and makes for some fun interactive game play!

comment Is D&D 4e supposed to have really easy skill checks?
I would assume that in the rules as they were written Wizards would have calculated the probability of success for what they suggest is an "easy" check or a "hard" check. To me 60% success does not merit the classification of "hard"

comment What is a good system for a political espionage game?
What are you looking for system wise? Like what rolling systems do you like (die+mod vs. dice pool)? Is combat a complete no-no or is a combat light system ok? I'm not sure you'll find an existing system with this setting so thinking about mechanic requirements will help find a system that might work with a few tweaks.

comment What actions can I take to move a PC that is in our way?
not sure I agree with your DMs call. as chooban said in his answer, you can freely move through allies spaces with no penalty. As a DM i would assume that means any projectiles coming from you would have the same ability. I just read the situation as the characters having said something to get their ally to step aside or duck, etc.

comment Does Crossbow Expert's point-blank attack benefit apply to all ranged attacks?
@MagRoader Not with the same exact features. Sharpshooter gives nice effects for ranged characters, but if you want the shooting at 5ft benefit you'd have to take the cross bow feat.

comment How to get advantage on all four ranged attacks in one round?
Flanking exists in 5e right? not sure the exact rules on it as I dont have my book near by. but if the enemy was flanked by the allies wouldnt all the attacks have advantage?

Character advancement can happen in more ways than just increasing your stats. Having the characters grow and evolve in their personality is one thing that will be happening, just like in a Noir film. Not sure if that changes the suggestions you made. If not, cool; I just wanted to clear up what may have been a misinterpretation of the minimal leveling up thing.

@Bobson That would be a good game if it hadn't been published in 1996 and now out of print.

comment Is D&D 4e supposed to have really easy skill checks?
Very good info and big thanks for what amounts to very hard DC= Hard+3. I will definitely be using that!! And yes, I have talked to my players :D they have actually been begging me to make things harder (a few are more used to 3.5 and, having never played that version, I assume is harder than 4e)
