Would I be able to get away with running an openvpn server on each of
the 30 servers, so they are all listening, as well as run a second
process of openvpn in client mode on each server then add routes so that
traffic destined for any of the 30 nodes would go through the openvpn

I know it would be a bit of a kludge solution but *can* it work...

The VPN would not have to give out new IP's forward and routes etc..
just allow encrypted traffic to go from box to box.
