Apollo will help the Trojans
You are still ZEUS. Your plan: Apollo is to use his skills to get Hector up and fighting, so the Greeks will panic and retreat. Achilles will send Patroclus into battle, and he will (alas!) kill your own son. Then Hector will kill Patroclus - and the stage will be set. No more gods are to fight until your promise to Thetis is fulfilled, and Achilles' wishes are met.
