The second installment of the Bard's Tale Trilogy, The Bard's Tale II: The Destiny Knight was released by Electronic Arts in 1986. It was written by Michael Cranford, creator of the first Bard's Tale. Versions were available for the Commodore Amiga, Apple ][, Apple IIGS, Commodore 64, and MS-DOS.

Hundreds of years ago, the archmage Turin forged the Destiny Wand, which brought peace and prosperity to the Realm. Now the evil archmage Lagoth Zanta has taken the Wand and broken it into seven pieces, which are scattered around the Realm. You must find the pieces, destroy Lagoth, and reforge the Destiny Wand, bringing peace back to the land.

Destiny Knight is in the same style as the first Bard's Tale, with parties of up to seven characters. All ten character classes from The Bard's Tale are available, and the Archmage class has been added.
