Bill Heineman (programmer of The Bard's Tale III) has said that the original name of this game was to be Tales of the Unknown - Volume II: The Archmage's Tale.

Michael Cranford, a devout Christian, named five of the cities in the game after those of the New Testament — and the power of the Destiny Wand is said to be that of the Holy Spirit. This was his last Bard's Tale game because he decided to go back to university to study philosophy and theology.

The hint guide for The Bard's Tale II was notable for being both a story as well as a walkthrough of the game, taking the point of view of a band of adventurers sent on a vision quest to decide what adventure they should tackle next. The guide was "written" by the assistant of the mage that had sent them on their vision quest who he had surreptitiously sent along without their knowledge to observe the events.
