I am wondering how some players interpret the SSlyth rule, "Cold-blooded Bodyguard" from a RAW point of view not a RAI.  If the archon is wounded and successfully transfers the wound the the slyth, according the wording would he only suffer one mortal wound?  It never mentions damage only a mortal wound and does not state suffering a mortal wound = to the damage taken.
How do you interpret the RAW?

EDIT: I mean if the Archon is wounded by a D6 damage weapon and the wound is transfered to a SSlyth would you even roll a D6 for the damage? Because it seems like it would stop there otherwise it would say suffers mortal wounds equal to the damage caused. I have not run into this situation before I am just wondering according to RAW.

From my interpretation, you roll a d6 for dmg on the sslyth.

I just realized maybe I have the order of operation incorrect.   Archon looses a wound, roll the D6 damage, then roll the 2+ Sslyth Intercepts?

I believe you have it right here. Each wound lost, not each to wound roll made against the Archon. So if a d6 damage weapon bypasses his saves and causes say 4 wounds, that's 4 2+ rolls you'd need to make to transfer each into a mortal wound on the Sslyth. Now in theory you should still be able to make the power from pain's 6+ "save" as well before transferring just to see if you can get anymore. Unfortunately this still means the Shadowfield has been broken...

The transfer happens on a 2+? So basically you got another shadow field.
