Here's how to get both "Liberator" and "Pragmatist" in one playthrough.

When you get to the "Anvil of the Void" area in the Deep Roads, you'll eventually come to a room with four anvils surrounding a column with four faces. After you defeat the trial in that room, SAVE your game, because you're at your decision point. Through a tunnel and into the next room a cutscene will play and you'll have to choose between Caradin and Branka.

For "Pragmatist" you need to side with Branka rather than Caradin. Keep on picking the choices that lead to letting Branka have the anvil. After the cutscene Caradin will go postal and you'll have to fight a pretty messy battle, followed by another cutscene, and the achievement pops.

At this point if you haven't gotten "Liberator," load from your save and perform the steps in that achievement guide.
