Tarma was hunting down different SQL 2018 members; she wanted to give them a surprise. In what order did she give the surprises, to whom did she give them, how much did they cost and what colour were they?

1. The present given Arianna cost 2 sickles more than the blue present. Of the gold present and the one given to Katelin, one cost 10 sickles and the other was given out first.

2. The present handed out third cost 15 sickles. The green present cost 3 sickles more than the present given to Katelin.
3. Will's present didn't cost 11 sickles. The present which cost 12 sickles was given out before the one which cost 14 sickles. Arianna's present was red.
4. The present which cost 15 sickles is more expensive than the one given to Arianna. Neither the purple present or the one costing 14 sickles is what was given to Emma (who got her present third).
5. The purple present was given out last. The present given to Silas cost 11 sickles.  Arianna received her present before Emma or Will.

I'm reposting the Emerald Cup logic puzzles here in case anyone else wants to try them. If you have already solved them for Emerald Cup, you cannot receive scales for them again. If you haven't, you may receive scales beginning in September.

Puzzle 1:

A duelling tournament has been organized for Emerald Cup! Heroes and villains who are interested in participating in the tournament are matched up. They must decide on one weapon to use during the duel. Each duel takes place in a different colored arena.

From the clues provided, determine which hero and villain are duelling, their weapon of choice, and the color of the arena.

1. Katniss is facing off against Magneto, but Superman isn’t battling Cersei. Despite his proficiency with swords, that is not the weapon agreed upon for Zorro’s duel. 
2. Five different duels involve Loki, Superman, the one using swords, the one in the magenta arena, and Katniss.
3. Either Yoda or Superman is using a wand. Ursula will be in the amber arena. The duel in the magenta arena will feature lightsabers, not bolas.
4. Cersei is duelling in the turquoise arena, not the grey arena. Neither Superman nor Katniss is battling Bellatrix.
5. Yoda, the one in the violet arena, the one with pistols, Aladdin, and Bellatrix are five different duels. 

(Heroes: Aladdin, Katniss, Superman, Yoda, Zorro)
(Villains: Bellatrix, Cersei, Loki, Magneto, Ursula)

Puzzle 2:

In an attempt to prevent Thanos from acquiring all of the Infinity Stones, Doctor Strange is using the Time Stone to send his fellow Avengers to different centuries from the 18th to the 22nd century. Each Avenger will take one of the other five Infinity Stones and hide it in a city in a completely different universe, such as Coruscant.

1. Of the Avenger hiding the stone in Atlantis and the one sent to the 20th century, one had the Mind Stone and the other was Scarlet Witch.
2. The one sent to the 22nd century, the one carrying the Soul Stone, and the one hiding a stone in Hogsmeade are all different Avengers. Captain Marvel didn’t have the Reality Stone.
3. The person who went to Hogsmeade was there one century before Iron Man was sent somewhere. The one with the Power Stone was sent two centuries before the Avenger who went to Gotham City.
4. Hawkeye didn’t go to Rivendell. The person with the Space Stone was sent one century before the Avenger who went to Atlantis.
5. Between the person who went to Atlantis and Black Widow, one had the Power Stone and the other was sent to the 18th century.
