- Due to Sofia and Pete's statuses as recovering addicts, Dimension 20 developed the Recovery System for players to use as they encounter stressors. This system can be found here.
- This season began filming the weekend of August 1st, 2020.
- The editors for this season were Erin Hassidim and Amielee Eastin.
- This is the second campaign (after Pirates of Leviathan) and first main quest to be filmed remotely. As a result, it the first to feature battle maps using Roll20 instead of physical maps and minis.
- These maps were still designed by Production Designer Rick Perry alongside Brennan, but they were made in cooperation with Eightfold Paper. Roll20 employee and fellow cast member Carlos Luna set them up and operated the battles.
- Besides the general desire from the cast to return to their Unsleeping City characters, this remote filming setup contributed to the decision to return to an old setting instead of entering a new world for season seven. With the transition from battle sets to digital maps, Brennan felt it better to have at least some part of the new season be familiar to viewers.
- This is also the first season that a player returns to a setting in a new campaign as a different character.
- In season one, Brian Murphy played Kugrash, who, in the finale, ate the Bagel of All Things and transcended to become one with the universe. In season two, he plays former Hot Topic manager Cody Walsh.
- Siobhan Thompson played Misty Moore, now Rowan Berry, who is busy running the new Faerie court that she established towards the end of season one. In season two, she plays Iga Lisowski, a fortune teller who launders money through her psychic business.
- Brennan began thinking about this season around early 2019, when Amazon's plans for an expansive corporate campus in New York City, and subsequent backlash, was in the news.
- The existence of Gladiator in both Tiny Heist and The Unsleeping City: Chapter II hints towards the headcanon Brennan has that the two campaigns take place in the same universe.
- As with many D&D games, Brennan incorporates many homebrew mechanics and house rules that may not be part of the rules as written.
- This is an estimate based on social media posts made by Siobhan Thompson and Ally Beardsley. Siobhan posted to Instagram on August 1st: https://www.instagram.com/p/CDWwS-cJyH5/?hl=en. Ally posted something similar to their now-expired story on the same day.
