In this episode, you asked if demonologists were featured in prior fantasy RPGs. The Palladium Fantasy RPG has a demonologist class. I'm not sure if the designers were aware of this. Palladium has been around for decades, though.

You also asked about other planar sources for summons. I could see talents focused around drawing beings and spell effects from Echo (13th Age's closest equivalent to the Shadowfell). There are all sorts of shadowy creatures and tentacles of living shadow that could be summoned. It could also warp space and time (an effect of Echo) or allow the PC to borrow cool powers similar to Cloak from Marvel's Cloak & Dagger comic/TV series.

Summoning angels was mentioned in the episode, but I don't think it covered what would happen if the they reached zero hp. What if the party took psychic damage and wept because they were no longer in the presence of the angelic hosts? It would fit real-world descriptions of the kind of awe people experience around angels.
