SPECIAL ABILITIES
Impromptu Sneak Attack (Ex) Once per day Alby can declare one melee or ranged attack he makes to be a sneak attack (the target can be no more than 30 feet distant if the impromptu sneak attack is a ranged attack). The target of an impromptu sneak attack loses any Dexterity bonus to AC, but only against that attack. The power can be used against any target, but creatures that are not subject to critical hits take no extra damage (though they still lose any Dexterity bonus to AC against the attack).
Ranged Legerdemain (Su) Alby can use Disable Device and Sleight of Hand at a range of 30 feet. Working at a distance increases the normal skill check DC by 5, and an arcane trickster cannot take 10 on this check. Any object to be manipulated must weigh 5 pounds or less.
TACTICS
Alby prefers the non-lethal approach for most larcenous encounters. He’ll never encounter the party whole, but tries to pick the PCs off individually. If given the opportunity, he strikes from ambush using greater invisibility to allow him to either pick pocket or fire off deep slumber or sleep, entangle and rays of exhaustion. If the opportunity presents itself against an unknowing target, he’s not afraid to use his magical sap to beat an opponent unconscious.

After casting detect magic he quickly removes any magical items from the subdued or unaware individuals before melting away into the distance. Paranoid about counter-theft, Alby’s recently “acquired” items are distributed amongst a number of different hoards in a wide number of locations, where they are hidden with the help of obscure object and non-detection spells.
