The RP does not take place in realtime. You must use good judgement and realize that what we do in a single post doesn't actually take up much time when you think about it. xD
Regardless, it's not so much complex as it is chaotic. There are no rules regarding where your character should be. It's very "sandbox" style in the sense that you can do whatever you want (within the rules, obviously.)
As a matter of fact, it will be up to you to make your characters get involved in the overarching plot when it comes around, though I certainly won't make it difficult.
