The Spider's power is independant from his realm size. For the realm,
though, it can't be easily invaded, because of his link to the land and the
spiders that live there (I would probably give him 8 or 10 units of spiders,
normal and larger sized, if someone invaded him). His power is more an
individual thing, no army could reach him through that forest, and very few
individuals could kill him even if they got to him.
