I am planning to DM a game of Shadowrun. As I have never been a DM before I was hoping people could provide me some insight, suggestions about this. Especially if you have DM'd a Shadowrun game. Thank you in adance.

-Don't focus too much on any one character
-Don't railroad the characters. If they come up with something you didn't think of and it works, then improvise.
-Don't work too hard on killing them. Games like this are almost never perfectly balanced, and one or two player classes are going to *always* catch the brunt of a bloodthirsty DM. In D&D, a barbarian or fighter can pretty much handle whatever, but a Rogue dies if a high level creature looks at him funny. Or he has to run and hide during combat every time. Which sucks. Focus on the story.
-Shadowrun offers quite a few avenues to approach any problem. Try to consider every possibility, but don't put up roadblocks for all of them. Just some of them, some of the time.
-Choose your clothing randomly by dice roll. No, not the NPC's clothing. YOUR clothing. Especially if you own silly clothing.
