A proposal for a new Dark Gift, based on this idea.

  Lucky Stiff [Psmith]

  LUCKY STIFF: A player who is a Lucky Stiff may, at most once per turn,
  designate a die roll he or she is about to make as a "swing roll". A
  player who is a Lucky Stiff may nullify the result of a swing roll
  (and cause the state of the game to be such as if that result had
  never occurred) by making another die roll for the same event, which
  shall also be considered a swing roll. Such nullification may be done
  at most twice per turn, and may not be done after a non-swing roll has
  been made.

In this version, unlike Roger's, you need to specify in advance which
roll is going to be rerollable, and hence I've given you two rerolls
to compensate for that.
