In 1985 the 2nd Edition of Midgard was released by the Verlag für Fantasy- & SF-Spiele. It was heavily redesigned and was one of the first role-playing games to separate exhaustion points from hit points. The game uses 20-sided dice for attacks, spells, and skills; 6-sided dice to determine weapon damage; and a 100-sided dice roll for tests against a character's attributes. This edition was released as two seperate books of 150 pages each.
Like the first edition this edition still plays on the world Magira which was replaced by the world Midgard in 1987 because of license problems.
