Post What kind of gutter will work with this roofline?

I have a gazebo with a roofliine that is symmetric on all four sides and looks like this:

As you can see, there's a "V" at each corner where the rain is channeled to a point. That rain then falls about 15-20 feet and pummels the lawn below. Is there a way that I can attach a gutter to the corner at the roofline to capture the water and channel it into a downspout?

I would use something called a scupper at each valley. they are also called Leader heads. Then a rain chain would work great so you do not have an unsightly drainpipe on it.
Here is a website showing what I am recommending...B&B Sheet Metal - Copper Gutters, Skylights, Finials & Accessories

I like Ben's idea of a rain chain. We have them at the dormitories at our local college. water just follows the chain of bells or whatever design they have into an underground tile, or to the atmosphere. I doubt you will get a "gutter" of any type to work with this configuration.
