Campaign Classics was a column published in Dragon magazine. The series debuted in January 1995 (Dragon #225),[1] with eight 2nd edition installments until December 1997, two more 3rd edition articles in 2004, and one last 4th edition appearance in 2008.

It provided new material for campaign settings that had been discontinued before.[1]

There were also three entire Dragon magazines, #315: Classic Campaigns, #339: Campaign Classics, and #351: Campaign Classics: Beyond the World Serpent Inn, dedicated to the same topic.
