It is proper to use "they" when referring to more than one person not including yourself. Use "Thay" when you are talking about a fictional country in Faerun. Use "thy" when you are feeling archaic.

Thay is unrelated to they and thy, thine and thou. Choose thine words wisely, as they say, a jug of wine and thou, thy will be done.

Obsolete 2nd person singular pronouns, since replaced by the plural form, you.
Possessive pronoun: Thine
Possessive adjective: Thy
Reflexive pronoun: thyself
Thou must spirit thyself away! Should my husband see thee, there will be trouble between ours and thine.

"Thay" isn't a word, "they" is third person plural (as opposed to he/she which is third person singular) and "thy" is olde englyshe (or biblical english) for "your".
