Superhorse founded Kinks & Crits in September 2016 as a way to fuse the two biggest aspects of his life: tabletop roleplaying games, and the Leather lifestyle. Once he realized that they both involved hitting things in dungeons, the rest was history!
(In addition to authoring this blog, Superhorse is also a professional and technical writer. His portfolio can be found here.)
In 2014, Superhorse became a member of Voodoo Leatherworks – a dungeon and community center in Colorado Springs – eventually joining its Leadership Council in 2016. Superhorse went on to win the title Mr. Leather Colorado 2017, which he leverages to create resources for his community, educate those unfamiliar with the lifestyle, and openly celebrate his identity and extended Leather family.
Superhorse also sits on the board of the Marquis Lifestyle Center, a nonprofit founded in 2016 dedicated to providing BDSM education to medical professionals, law enforcement, and crisis centers.
Superhorse has presented on the Leather lifestyle at the University of Colorado Colorado Springs (his Alma Mater), and will be presenting at Ghost Town Writer’s Retreat 2018.
Kinks & Crits is where Superhorse discusses his lifestyle, presents classes, and chronicles his Leather journey.
Superhorse has been playing Advanced Dungeons & Dragons since he was 8 years old, starting with his father's box of old rulebooks and yellowed graph paper. Since then, he has branched out into a wide array of other roleplaying games belonging to various genres and design philosophies – Luke Crane’s Burning Wheel being his favorite – but old-school D&D will always hold a special place in his heart.
Kinks & Crits is where Superhorse cooks up homebrew, publishes supplements, and hashes out game theory.
Superhorse sometimes posts things that don't fall under "KINK" or "CRIT;" sometimes, they fall under both! The ampersand is a powerful symbol, since it means whatever Superhorse wants it to mean.
