Lopy to Lopy - direct or via gateways?

Supposed there is a scenario with no Internet in vicinity of dozen of miles...
and I'd like to provide communication between multiple parties (20) carrying mobile LoRa devices nodes.
- Is it wise at all to look and provide communication mode where Lopy talks to Lopy? (since it is limited to a few hundred meters)
- In the above case will each Lopy see all the messages from all the rest of the participants (19 of them)?
- Would it be more wise/efficient to have Lopys communicate via pre-installed in-range gateway/s (although gateways are not connected to the Internet since there is no Internet).
- If the answer to question #3 is 'yes', how is it supposed to work? Gateway receives message from LoPy #1 and sends it to the rest of the Lopys (all 19 of them)? and so on for Lopy #2, 3... 20 ? In this case the messages probably should be filtered based on user preferences. The user of Lopy #1 may decide that now he want to talk only to user of Lopy #14 and discard the rest of the messages...or have an interface similar to email or instant messenger...
