pull from 3 way switch for receptacle

I want to add a receptacle to create a 2 gang arrangement with the second of the three ways. I understand that I can't create an always-on receptacle. Can I still create a switched receptacle? Can someone explain how my connections will be arranged?
There are no receptacles anywhere near this wall to pull from.

You may not have a constant feed to pull from. Some detective work will be needed to determine what wires are available in the switch box.
