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 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. Some of these efforts are made in conjunction with the Marquis Lifestyle Center, a BDSM education nonprofit; he sits on its board as Secretariat.
Superhorse has presented on Leather and BDSM at the University of Colorado Colorado Springs (his Alma Mater), TESSA, and will be presenting on the “Dark Love” panel at Ghost Town Writer’s Retreat 2018.
Kinks & Crits is where Superhorse advocates for and educates about the Leather lifestyle, chronicling his own journey as he goes.
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.
Superhorse is currently working on Trackmarks, a fantasy-noir setting developed for old-school Dungeons & Dragons, and his first published book. He designs useful, professionally designed documents for tabletop roleplaying games between projects.
Kinks & Crits is where Superhorse develops professional-grade resources, in-depth theory discussion, and homebrew content for tabletop roleplaying games.
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.
