Subconscious Inspiration

I don't usually remember most of my dreams, but recently I had a dream that I actually remembered upon waking. In this dream, the main character was being framed for something they didn't do. Off and on, I have been working on a new setting, and although the dream didn't directly reference the setting, all of the details fit smoothly into this setting.

This was a setting for a game, not a story, but now I might have to write a story based on this incident in my dream because the dream was really intriguing. I want to know how the hero clears his name! I guess I'll have to figure that out myself because I don't normally have repeat or consecutive dreams.

Have you ever been inspired to write a story because of a dream?
