The Silver Shroud was a multimedia franchise featuring the Silver Shroud fighting villains in a modern-day Boston.


The franchise was popularized as a radio drama on Galaxy News Radio that aired in the Boston area before the Great War. It was written by Tina Hopkins for Hubris Comics and Galaxy News Network.

Radio show

The Silver Shroud radio show consisted of 420 episodes (419 regular and one holiday special).[1] Crossovers with other properties were created, such as the 2071 Thanksgiving episode The Silver Shroud vs. Captain Cosmos.[2] It also included a number of minor characters, such as Mister Abominable from Episode 83[3][4] or the Shroud's love interest, the Mistress of Mystery, appearing as of Episode 2.

TV show

Although the radio show was a staple of Boston popular culture, television was beginning to outpace radio.[5] In response, a television show based on the radio show was planned, produced by Aaron Babowski.[6][7]



The Silver Shroud franchise appears in Fallout 4, Fallout 76, and Fallout Shelter Online.

Behind the scenes

The quest was primarily designed by Ferret Baudoin, while lead designer Emil Pagliarulo came up with the character of the Silver Shroud and wrote the in-game radio plays.[Dev 1]



  1. The Sole Survivor: "What can you tell me about the Shroud?"
    Kent Connolly: "He's from the radio shows! I've listened to all 419 episodes. And the holiday special. He's the best. Better th-than Grognak and Manta Man combined."
    (Kent Connolly's dialogue)
  2. The Sole Survivor: "Escape? What do you mean?"
    Kent Connolly: "Reliving old memories. Like Thanksgiving 2071. Ma made a 12 pound turkey. And then we all listened to, "The Silver Shroud vs. Captain Cosmos." Even pa was there. You ever listen to the Silver Shroud? That's who we need. No matter how bleak things got he'd save the day."
    (Kent Connolly's dialogue)
  3. The Sole Survivor: "I was in cryogenic storage for a long time. I only just woke up."
    Kent Connolly: "Oh man, that's amazing. You're just like Mister Abominable from Episode 83."
    The Sole Survivor: "Who's Mister Abominable?"
    Kent Connolly: "He was a cave man. Got frozen in an iceberg from prehistoric times. When they thawed him out he went on a rampage. It took the Shroud and Manta Man combined to take him down. Boy, if you just woke up. The world these days, must take some getting used to."
    (Kent Connolly's dialogue)
  4. Kent Connolly: "After all these years, the Silver Shroud is born again! But... there's just one problem. I'm just not Silver Shroud material. I could be Rhett Reinhart or-or his butler Jarvey Blake. But the Shroud is strong, capable."
    (Kent Connolly's dialogue)
